Re: Boeing 727 Leading Edge Device Question

The slats on the newer 737s and all 757/767 changed to a 3-position system. On those jets, the slats extend to a midrange position for takeoff flap settings, and a fully extended position for landing flaps. I seem to recall that early 737-200s did use an “asymmetric” system, as it were, but I don’t...

Re: Use of speedbrakes in Boeing 737 during RTO

I can comment on the 737, but the 747 and I know 777. The speed brakes will auto deploy in the event of a RTO when the thrust levers reduced to idle and TR deployed to reverse Idle above 80 knots. The 787 and 777-9 are the only Boeing models in which the speedbrakes will deploy as part of the Autob...
