- Without delay:
- • Raise the speedbrake lever.
- • Apply reverse thrust up to the maximum amount consistent with conditions.
- • Continue maximum braking until certain the airplane will stop on the runway.

NOTE: A Captain should reject a takeoff above 80 Knots only for the following reasons: an engine failure, fire or fire warning, predictive windshear warning, or the aircraft is unsafe/unable to fly.
NOTE: A takeoff shall not be started or continued with any warning horn or bell sounding before the aircraft attains 80 knots.
- NOTE: After V1, rejecting the takeoff is not recommended unless the Captain judges the airplane
- incapable of flight.
NOTE: The Captain must submit an Irregularity Report if a takeoff is rejected. If an erroneous takeoff warning horn actuates on takeoff or during the takeoff warning check, the Captain must ensure that an Info Only
