Ian Harrison Deon, I have mentioned this before: Your understanding of what flaps do needs to be improved. You cannot fly an A346 and retract flaps completely at 195'. Secondly, you did not plan your fuel. You took off with 90 tonnes when you only needed 22. You had 68 tonnes spare when you landed and to make matters worse, you landed at 30 tonnes over the permitted landing weight.which necessitates a check.Next time your PIREP will be rejected if these matters are not attended to.
Deon Schlebusch Hi Ian, where can I get more information on " Flaps" I had a look on the internet and not much is said, or I am looking at the wrong place!
