On a standard day.

You need to give some more info... and the context of your question wouldn't hurt either.

Payload, range required, runway length and elevation, etc....

On the 744 it depends on several factors such as runway length, obstacles in the climb path, temp, pressure alt, aircraft gross weight and flap setting.

Most airlines will attempt to use the lowest power setting required for takeoff. However, there can't be a reduction greater than a 25% reduction from full takeoff power.

On the CRJ the only variable for a standard full power takeoff is temperature.


Typically its around 90% or so.... flex thrust we usually will use an assumed temperature of 48-49 degrees C, which will reduce takeoff N1 to about 85%.

Gulfstream GIV and GV use about 92% when using "power for the day" or full EPR power, and flex power is around 85-87%, depending on temperature, available runway, etc. Just as XFSUgimpLB41X stated above.
