I am currently studying for my DX certificate. I choose the B757 as the
aircraft for it.

Anyway, the aircraft manual states not to use flaps above FL200. I believe
the B737 has the same restriction.

Unfortunately, I can not get anyone to give me a clear answer on why the
restriction exists.

Thank you,

Yves Hoebeke.
