• Thrust reversers: As selected on Non-Standard Config (NEAT corrections for 2 or 4 ENG max due to longer distance for cowling to travel with NEAT)

• - Spool engines up from idle
• - Transition spoiler logic (retract spoilers) from AGS LAND to AGS RTO (55° threshold for 5 seconds)

• - TOGA switch is pressed
50. What are the spoilers doing when you reject?
• All wing spoilers deploy to fully extended position when:
