I sincerely apologize due to server connectivity issues, the flight to Istanbul will be postponed to 900Z PM!


12,000Ft for an hour long flight? Isn’t that kind of short?

Yes, we’re trying to make it a short flight. If we fly below 10,000 ft we cannot go faster than 250kts so I chose 12,000 ft.

Why not go to 30,000Ft? I mean when I go flying for that short IRL we cruise at 30,000, but then again it’s your event so it’s up to you…

Well its a very short flight so I just wanted to choose 12,000ft. But i’ll consider it next time. Thanks!

J11 is yours. See you there!

I cruise every time on 11.000ft…
It dosen‘t burns to many fuel so I can fly more and I don‘t have to descend to long.

count me in too ant gate

J13 is yours. See you there!

Ahhaha at least you’re on my side! Let me know if you want to join this event! We’d be more than happy to have you join us!

11,000ft isn’t a cruise… Anyway…

The cruising hights are from 9.000ft-40.000ft like if you fly an regional flight with Dash 800 then you could fly 10.000ft maximum Boeing 717 too. 737 11.000ft or 12.000ft (I only flyed with 737 so…) if you fly with an 777-200 or 300 then you can fly very high. It depends on the size of the plane. David did anything correct. ;)

Exactly! It’s a very short flight. What’s the point of acsending all the way to 30-35,000 ft this is not a long haul. I think it’s a good height and speed we’re flying for this route.

The filed cruising altitude for this exact route in real life was FL350 on a recent flight.
