FastEddieB Posted July 8, 2016 Report Share Posted July 8, 2016 Ed seems to have established that a CT may climb better with partial flaps than with no flaps. If that's the case, and the POH specifies "No Flaps" for best rate, then the POH would appear to be wrong*. I don't recall any plane's POH specifying any flaps for best rate, but that's not to say that proves there's not. Let me call on our student and new pilots to maybe take a look through various GA POH's online, and look in the "Performance" section to see what conditions the manufacturer specifies for best rate of climb. I'm genuinely curious if there are any out there that specify partial flaps for best rate of climb. Will not prove anything, of course, since the POH's may be wrong, but still should be interesting. Let us know what you find! *If Ed is getting substantially better climb with flaps than without, he really should bring it to Flight Design's attention so they can correct the POH Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
