Thread: Climb Rate for 777

  1. Default Climb Rate for 777

    I am planning on flying at FL370 aboard a 777. How much fuel should i carry at takeoff and what should the climb rate be? I know that the speed gets lower and lower as you go higher, so what should my target speed be at FL370?

    How far are you going?

    That depends on lots of things, particularly how much fuel you're carrying and your climb speed.

    The indicated airspeed gets lower, but true airspeed increases.

    so

    For a start take a look at the climb profile listed in the online POH.

    A quick google search ("mach cruise 777") turned up this:

    http://webpages.charter.net/rtpete/html/777.html

    "Typical Cruise Speed is 0.82 - 0.83 Mach @ FL300 - FL350"

    As for rate of climb:

    max. 3800 fpm @ 250kts below 10,000 feet
    2000 - 2500fpm from 10,000 - 20,000ft @ 260 - 350kts
    1800 - 1500fpm from 20,000 - 26,000ft
    1500 - 400fpm from 26,000 - 35,000 ft depending on weight.
