Hope you’re all doing well. I am planning a flight from Dublin (DUB/EIDW) to Boston Logan (BOS/KBOS). In Simbrief, I enabled step climbing. Here is the flightplan route it generated for me.
INKU6E INKUR DCT CON DCT MALOT/M084F390 NATA 54N050W/N0494F390 NATA NEEKO/N0492F400 N478A TOPPS DCT AJJAY OOSHN5
Is it saying that at M084 I need to climb up to FL390, at N0492 I need to climb up to FL400? If so, do I start the climb at that point or do I need to level off at that point not that that last question should make too much of a difference
Im assuming simbrief gave you an initial altitude of FL390 as soon after departing Dublin you’ll be in the NAT A track.
What your flight plan means is this:
At waypoint MALOT, youll be doing M0.84 speed and altitude of FL390. FL390, though an odd FL but is valid for a NAT track.
At waypoint NEEKO, you climb to FL400 as now you’re out of NAT track and you need to maintain an even FL. The flight plan calls for a True Air Speed of 492kts at NEEKO as well. Thence it will be FL400 till you descend. You can refer to the navlog and see what altitude it calls for at each waypoint.
