Flight Notes

Speed, Height, Distance Conversion

  • Level flight deceleration allow 10kts/nm & 1kt/sec (deceleration is faster at lower weights)
  • Descending deceleration allow 5kts/nm & 0.5kt/sec
  • Idle descent allow 3nm/1000'

Approach Profile Planning

  • Aim for 250kts, 10,000ft by 30nm out
  • Aim for 210kts, On ILS at 12nm

Cruise N1

  • N1 = (2 x Alt/1000) + 10   eg at FL350 = 70+10 = 80% N1 or FF = (IAS*10)/2 -200  eg 250kts = 2500/2 -200 = 1050 kg/hr/engine

Climb Speeds

If ECON info not available, use 250KIAS until 10,000ft then 280KIAS/M0.74 thereafter

  • Best Angle = V2 + 80
  • Best Rate = V2 + 120
