Why or why not? > >Thanks, >Clem <email@example.com> > FAR 25 number 77 or there abouts says that all A/C must be able to do a bauked approach with the gear out and the flaps in landing config. You may retract the flaps to another setting if you can do it in less than 2 seconds with no trim change. Thats how the thing was tested years ago: with a test pilot at sea level with a new paint job, waxed to a high gloss, no bugs, no rain with new engines the pilot was just off 2 weeks practice on holding the "right" airspeed he was expecting it to happen. and lots of other problems make the real world case less wonderful, in short if the fuze blows when you select gear and flaps up you are better off to chop the throttle and land straight ahead.
