|Quoting AAR90 (Reply 20):|
With MD90 (no autobrakes) I seldom used any brakes at all... except to turn off at taxiway-E. Done properly, you should make only two turns, use no spoilers, use minimum/idle reverse thrust and minimum braking when landing at SNA. Of course, I've got 17 years of practice.
|Quoting TinPusher007 (Reply 31):|
Are you saying that the MD-90 has no autobrakes and that you also seldom use any manual braking at all? Also, if SNA has a relatively short runway, why would you want to only use min/idle reverse, min braking and no spoilers?
Im not questioning your 17 years of "practice" and I myself as a commercial pilot and CFII have never flown a jet, but I do have a working knowledge of airplanes and what you're saying makes very little sense to me. Could you clarify?
|Quoting SlamClick (Reply 6):|
If I'm not mistaken we no longer cut back below climb power. It has always been hard to believe that a jet at any power setting only two thousand feet above your house could be quieter than one at seven or eight thousand feet and climb power on a normal profile.
