*** What all the flap about?

Last week I posed this question: Tom and I were cleaning the gutters on the Harwich house when Tom mentioned that he noticed that airliners extend their flaps more on landing than take off. I don’t think I had ever quite noticed this, so I thought we could ask the DEFCON 1 network. What the flap about flaps?

From: jbthug:

Flaps are necessary on take-off to add lift to a heavy aircraft.

Flaps are more essential to add lift as a plane is landing, since it is trying to lose altitude AND speed, without losing too much of either before impacting the ground. FLAPS on landing also serve as air-brakes, to prevent running off the end of the runway (a bad, bad thing.)

From Tom Tripp:

Captain Lundquist,

Here's what all the flap is about. Extending flaps from the trailing edge of the wing (there are leading edge flaps and slats, too, but let's make this simple) creates additional lift by changing the shape of the wing and the flow of air around it. It also creates additional drag, which can slow the plane. So, on takeoff, aircraft use a small amount of flaps to add lift and shorten takeoff distance, but on landing use more, not only for the greater lift, but because on landing the additional drag (slowing) is a welcome side effect. On takeoff, we're trying to accelerate so we only use the minimum flap setting and tend to “clean up” as quickly after takeoff as

is safe.

Is that any clearer, or now as muddy as a Chatham clam bed?
