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?

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.
