How long does it usually take you to get to cruise?

From wheel off ground to cruise it takes me like 15 mins depends on the length and dist of flight.


About 20 minutes.

For me depending on aircraft and what the flight is it can take me anywhere between 15 minutes to 30 minutes


Depends - anywhere from 10/15 - 45 minutes.


I can get to cruise in about 2 1/2 minutes…

you never specified what aircraft


No he didnt because he said how long ‘usually’ which means on average how long does it take…

So…let’s go back to what Seb said yesterday.

A quick Google search “How long does it take for a plane to reach cruising altitude” resulted in numerous credible and informative sources, taken from pilots, engineers, etc. I’d suggest doing that before posting on here, as many of the topics you’ve posted are easy Google searches. Posting on the IFC is a last resort, after you’ve checked the user guide, looked it up on the forum, and performed a Google search. It shouldn’t be your first resource every single time, for every single question you have.


Who’s to say I don’t fly f22s in the casual server every day?

Its based on pitch and throttle.

Climb profiles are useless in my opinion.

Well the way you climb is not realistic 😂
You don’t reach FL350 5 minutes after takeoff
No commercial flight does that

I’m not asking how long it should take. I’m asking how long it would take them.

on average, takes 30 to 40 minutes

if I stepclimb on long hauls, it can take up to 12 hours

15-20min on a normal short-haul A320family flight. Might take less/more depending on the load and cruise level.

7-10min in a short haul flight which is 1 hour or less

10min in a average short haul flight

15-19min in a average medium haul flight

20-28min in a average long haul flight

It takes longer than 5 minutes bud

For Me it takes 10 minutes to get to FL350 at 2800FPM

No it doesn’t. I’ve seen you fly
It never takes you longer than 10 minutes to get to FL340 😂

IRL flights I’ve been on only take about 10 minutes.

I hear the 10,000 feet ding about 2 minutes after takeoff

Idk what airline you fly on
