F0 The speed to call ‘Flaps Up’ This is the ‘Clean Speed’ for the aircraft, which is the maximum speed the aircraft should fly with flaps extended. Shortly before this speed is obtained, the Flaps Up call is made.
Speed in knots F0 > 0
F1 - F40 The speed at which to make flap call The speed at which the corresponding flap call should be made. As an example, if you enter 100 in the F5 column (if it exists for your aircraft), the Flap 5 call will be made just before the speed of the aircraft reaches 100 knots. There is one column for each flap position selected for the aircraft. The values should decrease from left to right (higher speed for less flap detente). Note! If you don’t want a call to made for a flap setting during takeoff, you can enter ‘000’ in the corresponding column.
Speed in knots F0 > F1 > F2 > ... > F40 ’000‘ disables the call
Pitch The pitch angel required at rotate. Some airline procedures call the pitch required at rotate during takeoff. This is done particularly for the Boeing 747-200 (Classic) series of aircraft. If you enter a value here, the corresponding value will be included in the rotate call. If the value is 018, for example, the call sequence at takeoff will be „V1, Rotate 18 degrees, V2“. If you leave it at 0, the call sequence at takeoff will be „V1, Rotate, V2“.
Pitch angle in degrees ’000‘ disables the call
