Was just reading the previous page with regard to stopping a takeoff after V1. Now I'm a novice at this game and certainly don't have any experience in jets BUT I was under the impression that to abort a takeoff at or just before V1 needed the use of everthing. Brakes, spoilers, reverse thrust etc...

I'm jsut wondering that if you go to abort the takeoff after V1 because of an engine fire, do you really want to be using reverse thrust - possibly making the problem worse?

Anyway - like I said, I'm no expert on this topic and have infact only got a couple of hundred hours and mostly fly singles, so please excuse me if this seems a silly comment to the rest of you.
