Technical questions

  • Take-off segments OEI & climb gradients for a twin-engine

Takeoff Distance: Roll, failure of the critical engine immediately before V1, rotation, lift-off and V2 at 35 ft height, using takeoff thrust on all engines up to the engine failure speed, and then takeoff thrust on operating engines. Takeoff flaps are set since the beginning of the takeoff roll.

1st segment: Begins at the point where the aircraft is at V2 and 35 ft high and ends at the point where the landing gear is fully retracted, with speed equal V2, critical engine inoperative, takeoff thrust on operating engines and takeoff flaps.

2nd segment: From the point where the landing gear is fully retracted up to the point at which the aircraft levels off for flap retraction. The level off height depends on obstacles and must be at least 400 ft above the runway. Throughout the 2nd segment, with the critical engine inoperative, takeoff thrust on operating engines and takeoff flaps are maintained.

3rd segment: From the end of the 2nd segment, up to the point at which the climb configuration (flaps up, final segment climb speed) is reached, with the critical engine inoperative, and takeoff thrust on operating engines. This segment is used for level flight, acceleration and flap retraction at a height of at least 400 feet.

4th. segment: From the point at which the climb configuration is reached, up to a 1500 ft above the runway (or more if required for obstacle clearance). Flaps up and Maximum Continuous Thrust on operating engines is used throughout the 4th segment.
