>From: jsmeeker@NOSPAMPLEASE.cyberramp.com (Jeff Meeker) >What about speeds like Vx, Vy, Vfe, etc.?? Are these calculated for >the 727, or is it a simple book lookup value like it is in a single >engine Cessna?? The terms Vx and Vy are not used in transport category aircraft. The max flap speeds are, or course, different for each flap setting. The flap speeds for a basic 727-200 are: 230, 215, 205, 185, 185, 175 (KIAS) for flaps 2, 5, 15, 25, 30, 40, respectively. Some 727's have a flap 20 position, and most operators do not use the flap 40 position. Some 727-200 Advanced have higher flaps speeds, e.g. 245 for flaps 2.
