What Kilo says, the whole point of a low speed RTO is the startle and surprise effect. If you know itís coming, itís no big deal. Once in a while when you donít expect it the instructor should throw in one and youíll never forget.
Asking for one in your next session is nice but wonít be the same.

I'll be asking for one in my next sim session.

As I mentioned earlier, I've been flying the 747 for two decades and now a Captain, and have NEVER been given this scenario in the sim, bizarrely.

As an added bonus I'll be putting the clipboard over the upper EICAS before I start the take off roll so I can't cheat like I usually do, by watching which engine rolls back.

Also, I'll delay my RTO for about 3 seconds to simulate the startle/identification factor..

All in 100m viz.

Wish me luck!
