Why this event?
Nothing really, I just want people to fly with me. I feel lonely to fly alone. Anyway, I chose this route as it’s the BAVA featured route of the day! If you’re not from BAVA but haven’t flown to KSJC, now it’s your chance. If you’re from BAVA and have flown to KSJC, fly for the sake of getting 11 hours of flight time.
Aircraft: B787-9 (British Airways livery)
Fuel: 12 hours 00 minutes
Cargo: 6286kg each
(To save time, just select heavy and leave everything as it is)
As we would be having the same weight, below are some useful tips:
Vr: 160 kts
0ft - 5000ft MSL: 2500fpm
De-rate and allow airspeed to slowly increase to 250 kts.
Once above FL100, allow airspeed to slowly increase to 300 kts and hold it there.
5000ft - FL200: 1500fpm
When nearing FL270, ensure airspeed is 318 kts (equivalent to M 0.85)
200 - FL340: 1200fpm
Step-climb as and when necessary.
If I have missed out anything, feel free to leave a comment. I don’t wish to take pictures at the end of the flight. I just need people to fly with me.
