Stop banging on about a demo flapless! The report clearly states what the captain called for.
Exactly!

. For over a 1000' neither crew member, and especially the Captain, never looked at the flap setting after selecting them? That's a huge, and fundamental, problem. Action -> verify.
As mentioned before, they had a speed alert, and still didnt check flaps.

Being this was an ATR regional, with the accelerated program to get Captains, the Captain may have had only 2500 hrs. (the report does not mention hrs)
