Take off - How much thrust do I need?


#1

I am that kid to take off with full power no matter what and I want to improve my game so could people tell me what N1 and flaps they use upon takeoff.
This could really help me improve at the game.

I know this changes from plane to plane and airport to airport.

Thanks in advance

You mean what takeoff speed we use?


#3

It depends on your aircraft and on the length of the RWY. But for airliners, you should use 80%-95% N1.


#4

No the N1 Android flaps


#6

It depends on what aircraft you are using. The total weight of your aircraft. Trim(if you use it).
Tbh the basic N1 reached for heavies and supers is between 95%-99%.

Hey there!
I would reccomend taking a look at some tutorials on youtube to help make your simulation experince more realistic.
Ideally, there is a percentage count above the throttle. With N1 next to it.
N1 is the fan (or, fan speed) and is related to your thrust. The N1 should never display over 100%, (it does when you gas the throttle to 100%). Whenever i go on a flight, i calculate everything, like my V1 speed etc… My throttle never goes above 85%, because at 85% the N1 usually is at 90-99%.

Thanks this really helps

How does one is his trim correctly?
(Sorry for all the questions)

Thanks for the advice

For trimming an aircraft take a look at these diagrams.

Thank you so much for the help

80 N1 is way too low, at least 88 or 90 should be used.


#13

Personally for jets I go 83% on the throttles which typically will give you 90% N1


#14

For a light 787 on a 11000ft RWY 80% are definitely enough my friend. :)


#15

Most of the time, you will be closer to MTOW than a light green. If you have no weight, I agree 80 is enough, although for anything else, you need at least 10 more.


#16

For the A318-321 and 737 my thrust is around 87-90%
For the 777, 787, 747, A330 and A380 my takeoff thrust is between 82-85%


#17

I take off at N1 100% on pretty much all the aircrafts I fly. The throttle settings would be different though.

For a 737, N1 100% would be 95% throttle.
For an E175, N1 100% would be 82% or 86% throttle I can’t remember


#18

I take off at N1 85% and it’s pretty takeoffs for me but for JETS I’m usin 55-60%
