SR22 Takeoff and Climb Out Issues

Hey guys,

I am having some issues with the SR22 currently. Not sure if it is my flying but I have tried 4 times and failed on 4 attempts to get off the ground even after reducing the weight.

Let me know if im not the only one and I can dig into it further…


Nope a 7knt Head Wind and I had 30% trim even tried higher.

Well not sure how to help there

My problem exactly. I started as weighted heavy and then dropped the fuel to about 2hrs worth and still got to the climb out at around 70knts and stalled out at 100FPM.

Do you have 10 degree flaps in? Should be 50% flaps but oh well. Also, not sure if this is an issue exactly, you might just need to be a better pilot 😂

Well, the SR22 is an older plane in IF so that might be your reason as to why you are falling through the sky.

I used 10 because it was a long rw and felt like I had plenty of room.

It’s a far older model, behaves the same as something like the C17 (unbearable).

There really isn’t a solution, just throw in some more flaps and hope for the best.

Not necessarily. As I have been able to fly this in the past completely fine and the issue arose today really stumped me. This was the first time I have flown this since the 20.3 update.

What speed did you rotate at, and what was your climb rate?

It wasn’t changed as far as I’m aware 🤷

Maybe it’s bad winds/load… sounds like it’s just your problem and not something that would affect everyone who flies the SR22.

Just throw in more flaps and rotate a bit later.

This is all stated above as I have flown this plane in worse conditions as this and the plane reacted perfectly fine.

Try lowering your cargo/pax load?

I have 2 passengers and 25lbs of cargo.

I had like 4hrs of fuel and I dropped it to cargo. I could rotate then stalled out.

Might I ask for a replay file?

I cannot do it tonight but @Canadian_Aviator was there and may be able to give input and maybe a replay.

I must go to bed now.

I fly the SR22 IRL (training) and in some flight sims with an updated SR22.

2 hours is a bit to pack on (assuming you are doing patterns) but it can be done during C/C (up to 4 hours about). I forget if mixture is available in the IF SR22, but make sure to optimize that if it’s available.

Throttle full, and flaps 50% for takeoff. Rotation at a higher weight is usually around 75 knots, so be aware of that.

Hope this helps!
