View Full Version : Ops question virgin atlantic

15th Jan 2010, 08:08
looking up the virgin FCOM came across a topic which seems not very clear for me, maybe you could enlighten this for me ...

Company policy for reduced thrust is either TO with assumed temperature, TO2 or TO2 with ass. temperature, they donīt use TO1 at all.
Quote FCOM SP 18.12 (reffering to TODC):
"The default DERATE 0 (OPT/ASS) will generally produce TO2 with an assumed temperature unless the aircraft is very heavy, the airfield elevation is very high and/or OAT are very high. TO1 is not used"

Why donīt they use TO1? under which circumstances is TO1 then used ?
