# Highest altitude at which you can cruise in IF

What’s the highest altitude A plane in IF can cruise and also the jets?

As high as they can in real life. Above that you might end up with engine shutdowns as we don’t have any fuel data for above service ceilings basically :)

Well in wide bodies I go nowhere above FL410 and in narrow bodies FL380 as that’s the top altitudes I have seen on Flightradar24. Fighter jets I’ve reached FL650.

Lol I know. For real. As @Kate_Russell said, it all depends on the plane.

How I’ve tried so often 😂

Can anyone like tell me an app I can calculate my stuff like fuel and cargo that tell me what altitude I can cruise like it says that’s 747 can cruise at 45,000 but whenever I get on top on that altitude I either stall or lose control help?

FLPtoIF calculates lots of useful things for a flight

Well, for starters, the 747 (any variant) cruise ceiling is roughly 41,500ft max, so you will stall or experience engine shutdowns at FL450.

For fuel calculations…

I don’t understand this why is it in decimals I cant put in pounds/LBS?

Just multiply whatever decimal by 1000. It’s in decimal form to reduce clutter.

Ok sorry how do I do that? My cargos 50,000 LBS and overall weight of my plane 747 is 750,000 LBS

Get out a calculator, press the 5 button, then the X, then the 1 button, then the 0 button (thrice).

… or was that not your question?

I just need to know how lol to calculate

Calculate what?

Converting 50,000LBS into Decimal like the one shown in the picture
