May 28th 2009 9:08PM The four speeds set up for in the Q400 are the following:
Two are bugged:
Vref - Approach Speed
Vga - Single engine go-around speed
Two must be written down:
Vfri - Flap retraction speed
Vclimb - single engine climb speed
This is all read of a report send via ACARS from Aerodata and often only the last two digits are read out loud because they are all 1--.
Also, with the flaps in transit, the stall speed will obviously be higher. In my experience, even with the icing switch turned on, the stall speed is about 8 knots lower than the approach speed.
