The benefits of flex/assumed temp/ reduced power take offs are undisputed.

I doubt there is an Airline in the world that is not doing them as routine.

As already well stated, not only are there benefits in less long term wear and tear, but it vastly reduces the stresses on any particular take off, directly reducing your chances of engine failure.

More is always there if you need it, in the sim, however with an engine failure at or after v1, normally we do not push the power up on the remaining engine (s) unless we absolutely need it.All performance is calculated on that reduced power.

Like to be very careful with what we have left !
