So, I’ve seen some requests for V-speeds and takeoff thrust calculators and whatnot, but I was just thinking about the stage after that - climb. In real life, pilots will receive all their takeoff data, but from what I’ve seen, climb thrust isn’t included in the briefing or the calculations. I don’t think it would be that hard to implement an automatic climb thrust (maybe a CL on the autopilot speed selection or something), and here’s why. The autopilot is already able to adjust itself based on your climb rate. Assuming people take off realistically (and maybe even if they don’t) setting climb thrust could be a piece of cake. When set, the autothrottle either derates or accelerates based on your climb angle and needs in order to keep your aircraft accelerating at a moderate rate until either a set speed or disengaging climb mode causes it to turn off. Now, I’m not sure exactly how climb thrust works in real life, and if any of you know I would love to hear, but I think this would be a great addition to make realistic pilots like me happy.
It will also soothe our lazy side haha
