Re: Do Boeing 737 pilots use Flaps 1 or Flaps 10 very often?

Flying in Europe, speed restrictions during the approach is a bit less common than in the US and I barely ever use flaps 10. Usually 1 - 5 - 15 - 30 or 1 - 5 - 15 - 25 - 40. Nothing in our SOPs prevents us from going from 15 to 40 at once, but that makes for a slightly dramatic configuration change...
