  • Flap 2 has no practical application.
  • Flap speed increments required by the QRH for non-normal situations still apply, i.e. airspeeds specified by non-normal QRH procedures override these latest flap speed increments.
  • In heavyweight return to land situations where the speeds exceed the flap limiting speed, then the flap limiting speed becomes the overriding limit i.e. do not exceed the flap limiting speed under any circumstances.
  • Note that 20 kts has only been added to flaps 5 maneuvering speeds. At flap settings UP, 1 and 10, only 10 kts was required to keep the maneuvering speed above the crossover speed. Flap maneuvering speeds beyond 10 are unchanged.
