Sim Fokker cruise speed

Recommended Posts

Occasionally I still dig out my Werner Schott aircraft guides just to refresh my memory concerning cruise speeds ,landing etc.For the Fokker 100 the cruising speeds at Alt approx FL280 TO 320 are M70 this is a lot slower than other small commuter type aircraft. Are those CSps correct or has dear old Werner made an error in this case?Andy

If I remember correctly (I used to be an instructor on the real airplane) the MMO was .74 and cruise was around .70-.72

Thank you very much guys. I had almost forgotten this post.Since I didn't get any takers originally I did do some research myself on the net ,and it does seem as though the cruise speeds are indeed around the M70 72 mark for this aircraft.And as 'Investdude' used to be an instructor I ain't arguing with that.smile.pngThanks Egbert I will checkout your link.Andy
