Only FMS-Flat Climb profile & cost indext?

Recommended Posts

Guest Susan27

Hi,after some time of hard-learning (thanks again guys!)I can manage MD11 flights (manually/automatically) quite well. There is only one problem:The rate of Climb is much too less: For a 1 hour flight (LTBS to LTAC) with an Enroute FL 270 hereis what happens:After the first climb-out maneuver the FMS only climbs with 1000-1500 ft/min. There are no Alt restrictions for the selected/used SID...so I think the only reason for that flat-climb-profile has to be the Cost Index, it is set to 80...Edit: Well I think it is probably NOT the CI: I changed it to 100 and nothing changed: The climb rate is as low as before....Do you guys habe any idea what to do to increase Climb rate? My goal is to climb as fast as possible (3000 ft/min until FL 200 and afterwards 2000 ft/m until Enroute FL 279 would be really nice) and then fly the Enroute phase with Mach 0.82...Is this somehow possible...?Thanks very much! :)

The default profile is ECON, go to the PERF page for the climb and change the speed. You can select max climb (rate) or insert a number that suits your desired profile. This retains the PROF in control, such that pitch is controlling speed.You can directly control rate of climb but I think the better method is as above.
