Add rows to the table by clicking Add, and double-click each cell to enter a new value.
Note that the weight appears in descending order, with higher weights at the top of the table. The first row, starting with 154, is used when the aircraft weighs 154,000 lbs or more. The second row, starting with 121, is used when the aircraft weighs between 121,000 and 154,000 lbs. The last row, starting with 000, is used when the aircraft weighs less than 121,000 lbs. Note also that the V2 is greater than VR, and that VR is greater than V1. The flap call speeds decrease from left to right, making F0 greater than F5, F5 greater than F10, and so on. The F1 and F2 calls will not be made, since their speed is set to ‘000’.
Notice that the normal takeoff flap setting is the same as specified
on the previous panel. The setting should be F5. If it isn’t, select the option beneath the F5 column now.
If you take off in the 737 using a higher flap setting than the
normal F5 setting, the V-speeds should be reduced by 10 knots regardless of the aircraft’s weight. Since the same speed reduction of 10 knots is used for all weights, enter ‘000’ in the Weight column and ‘10’ in the Reduction column, as shown below.
Note that since the weight is entered as ‘0’, the same V-speed reduction will be used regardless of the weight of the aircraft.
Specifying cruise data for your aircraft
The cruise data section is available by clicking the Cruise button on the top of the Editor area. The cruise data are less complex than the takeoff data. The table is interpreted by FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 in the same way as the takeoff data table. The columns of the cruise data table are explained below.
