if I remember correctly, autothrottles were used to set the takeoff power setting
|Quoting SlamClick (Reply 2):|
If your observation is limited to one airport it might be related to that. There are runways with displaced thesholds where you may take the active at the very beginning of the runway but not apply full takeoff power until passing a certain point. Runways 01L and R at SFO are like this.
I haven't been into PNS since 1967 and unfortunately GoogleEarth doesn't have most of the airport in high-res so I can't answer my own question. But it could be that departures have some such restriction.
|Quoting Vikkyvik (Reply 7):|
Would this restriction be due to objects that could be damaged by jetblast located at the arrival end of the runway?
