Flap speeds and retracting schedule?


Recommended Posts

Hello guys,


Could someone shed some light on how to operate the Flaps/Slats after takeoff? I usually have VFE speeds at or close to VR and Slat retraction speed shortly after. So my understanding is that i could immediately retract everything after liftoff which seems a bit counterintuitive. For example VR 163 kts, VFE 166 and slat retraction around 180 kts.  So if i rotate gently i am at about 180 knots after liftoff...


Any tipps appreciated!


Best regards
