a little confused about page 197.

use of flaps.

it states on jets that a lower takeoff flap increases Cl and reduces the aircrafts takeoff run required. It reduces Vs, V2 and Vr. well it doesnt in my jet!!!

He then contradicts himself and says max takeoff flap can be used to reduce the ground takeoff run, is that no TORR he just described above as being reduced by less flaps?

Does he not mean a lower flap means greater ground run, but inproved climb? Not all that stuff about TORR?

Maybe im missing a point!
