View Full Version : flap extend chart?
Searching through the POH and QRH, but it seems no flap extention chart during approaching. I know there is one, the Max. extend speed, but the schedule?
For example, 120000lbs, approaching, the speed and corresponding flaps? I want to set the speed bugs :-)
BTW, what is "inner" bug and "outer" one?

In the QRH (and on the kneeboard ), it's the Maneuver Speed chart.
Not sure what you meant about the bugs though.
Let me think.... 120-100 = 20 divide by 2 add 107 =117=Vref30. Now with this number you add 15, 30, and 60 to get Vref20, Vref10, Vref5.
Now what do you do with this? Well, if landing with flaps 30, set inner bug to 117, the next bug is 132, the next bug is 147, the next bug is 177. I usually set one more at 200 for flaps 2. There is a chart in the manual that can be printed that will give you all the speeds. Or you can check this link and the video tutorial to explain a simpler way to happiness with Boeing.

Paul, excuse the self promotion, but I couldn't resist.
Thank you for your explaination.
About the bugs, not programm bugs, but speed bugs, which mark the important and crucial speed around the ASI.
Thank you. Now I can't wait to try it :-)
The link seems broken but I'll search that file.
