Thanks to everyone!
I generally land in “Normal”. My tanks contains 56788kg of fuel, I have got 179 pax which represents 13813kg. My total cargo weight is 8142kg. My GW is 78743kg.
1kg = 2.20462262lbs
So 2.20462262 x 78743 = 173 598 lbs
I can’t see 173598 in your table Laurens…
I always land in Conf Full (ie. Flaps 30°) at 167kts + Trim 20°.
I generally don’t have any problem to land, to turn (ie. I still have lift)…Etc. I find that I am at a good speed.
I take-off around Vr = 150kts with thrust at 90-95% (flaps 15). I try to not cross N1 100% for engine performance. My average CRZ ALT is 12 000ft (FL120). I enter 250kts (245kts when there is tailwind) in the SPD window, to not exceed 250kts below FL100. I retract flaps 15° at 230kts. I maintain 250kts - Flaps 5° till FL100. I then accelerate to 320kts after FL100 and climb towards FL120
During landing, I ask ATC to clear me to descend at 3000ft. When I request to descend, I enter 240kts in my SPD window (to not cross 250kts below FL100). I then trim my plane at 60-70 and descend at VS -1500ft/min till 3000ft. At 240kts, I extend flaps to 5°.
Finally, when at 3000ft (I always try to look at the carts to figure out at which altitude I should intercept LOC and GS), I reduce directly to 167kts - Flaps 30°.
When I intercept ILS, I descend at VS - 700ft/min (sometimes -800ft/min).
I am always surprised when ATC asks to me maintain another speed (few days ago, ATC requested me to accelerate at 260kts at 3000ft!)
Please help! :smile:
I really want to listen to ATC and follow their requests.
