TOGA - How to Use it?

PhillFlash Guest

Hello,
     I believe that TOGA is an acronym for Take Off Go Around (throttle control).
     Any advice on how to activate or "use" this feature.  I've had it work for me a time or two by accident, but I can't figure out how make it happen "at will".
     Thanks for any help anyone may be able to offer.

Thanks RadarMan, but ... I was thinking more along the lines of just what order the activation process takes, like:

A: Activate TOGA
B: Move throttle to TakeOff position.
C: Activate AutoPilot

... you know, kind of "seeing-eye-dog" step-by-step.

Q1: Do I activate TOGA while on the groung before take-off?
       If not, when?
Q2:  After successful activation of TOGA, do I ever need to intervene manually?
Q3:  Should I expect it to automatically control the throttle completely through landing?
Q4:  Does Auto Pilot need to be on?

I guess I'm not sure when it's actually "doing it's thing".

Thanks,
Phill

See if these help.

Take-off/Go Around (TO/GA) is an autopilot/autothrottle setting activating take-off or go-around thrust. Depending upon aircraft type, it may be activated by depressing a switch or by manually moving the thrust levers to the appropriate position.
