Tutorial: Cessna 414 Climb, Cruise And Descent


Recommended Posts

  • Founder

thecorporatepilotdad presents a new tutorial video for MSFS 2020 pilots.

In this video, climb, cruise, and descent profiles and planning will be covered.  As a Professional Pilot who has flown 400 series Twin Cessna aircraft for hundreds of hours, some real-world procedures are shown.  

How much fuel and time does it take to climb to various altitudes? That information will be given as well.

Power settings for climb, cruise, and descent are shown.  Cruise charts from 1,000 to 30,000' are shown.  A brief explanation of setting power from the charts is given and actual performance versus charted performance is compared.

Descent planning is simplified when it comes to power management.  If looking for methods of planning when to start a descent to reach a desired altitude, that is NOT this video.  

Power management in the descent is simplified and the method shown will greatly reduce pilot workload and make flying the FlySimWare Cessna 414AW much easier by committing a few numbers to memory.
