J41 Cruise

Recommended Posts

Simply cannot find a cruise performance chart.Some questions:At full weight can I climb direct to a flight level above FL200?I understand FL250 is max FL, is it attainable easily? Dependent on temp or weight?I'm looking at a long cruise >3 hours, so looking at using a high FL.Thanks

I wouldnt say its "easy" as anything, the plane loses climb performance the higher it goes, weight is obviously an issue. Fully loaded plane, in some hot weather = not the time to climb master. Of course when it comes time to descend its the exact opposite lol.

I do +500NM fully loaded flights so I cruise always at FL250-260 (FL260 is service ceiling not max). When there are no icing conditions aircraft climbs easily to this level, with climb rate about 500fpm at FL260.

Thanks for confirming. I did a test flight and there was no issue attaining FL250.Thanks

Using standard conditions, and accepting a looooong climb, I got her up to FL310 during beta testing. She wasn't real happy tho-

I never have any climb problems, I usually cruise around FL200 but on a occasion I had some clouds causing icing at FL200 so I took it to FL230 to clear them without much trouble (eng antiice off) while moderately weighted.

Haha, when I first got it so did I, FL310.
