You look outside, turn the aileron at the maximum downward deflection, and align the flaps to it. This is the takeoff position. For landing, myself it is always full flaps. But some prefer what is called 20 degrees ( position of takeoff ) since it is easy on a go-around ( you don't have to touch the flaps.It depends in fact of your load. In a 395, you will have pleinty of power for a go-around with full flaps at it's maximum grossweight. But if you are overload, full flaps might be too much of a drag. But myself it is always full flaps, even overload, managing the plane to never be slats out AND full flaps AND overweight on approach. These three condition together being capable to bring you behind the power curve. Fly the slats. There are there as the best Angle Of Attack indicatorLouis
