B788 Pitch at Cruising

Mach speed is M 0.83 and weight is 25% fuel which is 54,000lbs as of right now.

Okay, I’d suggest retracting the flaps and increasing your speed to Mach 0.85.

If the problem persists, let me know.

No need to worry, its normal for the 787 to cruise with a positive pitch

Ok so I did that and it is the same.

Can you send me a screenshot?

That happened to me I just put flaps 15 and moved away from the wing

Set the flaps to 0 degrees, since the flaps increase lift.

Just did !

I just got it ! Thank you for your help guys!

Awesome! Glad I could help!

Have a great flight!

Thank you !


One last thing, you should adjust your trim until you don’t see the pink line on the box.

ok! just did it

You may be too high for the amount of fuel you have

No, 25% load at FL400 should be fine.

Yes but for future flights, for example, a 14hr flight, if you start at FL400 your aircraft could stall.

Also, How close is toooooo close for aircraft to be cruising. I’m flying LAX --> JFK right now and a plane right next to me at 7NM is flying that too. I think that’s too close.

The minimum requirements for aircraft separation at cruise are 5 nautical miles (nm) and 1,000 feet vertically.

Ok good! Cuz many times at cruising I have a plane skid past my right or left cockpit view at 2NM and I fail like dat.
