PMDG 747-400 Type Rating CourseLesson Two: Takeoff
Lesson Two Overview:
For this exercise, I have provided a series of saved flights. Theseflights are designed to work with specific sections of this lesson, and you will be prompted whichsaved flight to load during each phase of the lesson.Each saved flight will be used to demonstrate a different technique for takeoff. Some of thesaved flights will be reused a few times in order to demonstrate different techniques. This lessonpicks up where Lesson One ended, so you will notice that the aircraft/FMS setup is familiar!This lesson will take you through normal takeoff techniques, aborted takeoffs, engine failuresduring takeoff, high and low gross weight takeoffs/aborts/engine failures, and you will finish upwith low visibility takeoff procedures. The intent is to teach you the proper techniques to use forplanning your takeoff and preparing for all eventualities that you might face while operating yourPMDG 747-400/400F.
