MissSoph created the topic: What chart to use

I’m currently doing review question set 1 p234...
So it gives the TOff data.... and asks for x wind component, hwind component, max tow permitted, and the vtoss....
Now by seeing I need to answer the vtoss... i know it has to be for the echo...
So I’ll use the echo take off chart...p19 of the supp... is this how I know which chart to use.? Because the question just asks.... the take off data is given for the following strip... in the exam... do they specifiy it’s the echo..? If it’s not asking for the vtoss... which chart do I use?

Why ? All light aircraft have a takeoff speed scheduled, commonly referred to as takeoff safety speed. There is nothing special about the Echo in respect of Vtoss.

My take is that the question is missing a note as to which aircraft it applies. Bob/Stewart, no doubt, will be along shortly to clarify this.

If no specific aeroplane is specified, you can assume it is referring to the Echo since that is the only manual you have. I have included a note in the exercise to clarify that. Thanks for your feedback.
