Take Off thrust

Recommended Posts

Hey, how can I calculate the correct takeoff thrust? After take off I try to climb at V2 + 30 but the aircraft climb like a rocket....

What aircraft are you talking about? However, if it has enough thrust just use pitch to keep IAS stable, the more it climbs the better! Speed will naturally decrease after a few thousand feet altitude.

The lear design was based on a military design and is a little over powered, well a lot actually, you simply need to monitor your speed. Do some reading about it, quiet interesting.

It can achieve a ROC of 8000 ft/min, no joke! However it shouldn't be taken at full throttle on early climb as I read elsewhere...

I have a copy of a real POH. as soon as I figure out a way to share it with everyone I will be happy too. It has charts for T/O power. However, I typically use about 98% thrust and that seems to be plenty for most flights. Just keep in mind that she accelerates fast. You have to quick with getting her cleaned up (gear& flaps), and YD engaged.
