Is it possible in a STOL or any commercial airplane for V1 to be after Vr and V2 if the runway is long enough and the headwind component is strong enough? One would think it could be possible on DEN's 34L, which is 16,000 feet long?
Also, for the pro's out there, if coming in to land do you ever bump the landing Vref speed by 5-10 knots to give you a cushion knowing there may be gusty or windshear conditions on final, so that it's one less thing to deal with at such a critical phase of flight?
Starlionblue wrote:To add to the increase in Vref (Vapp on Airbus) in gusty conditions, this is also tied in to autothrust. It takes a moment for autothrust to react to a speed excursion. Having a 3-5 knot buffer means if you have a downward speed excursion by the time you are down to "actual" Vapp, autothrust has reacted already.
