Depends on weight, weather, speed etc. 4000 tends to be the upper climb limit.

Anywhere 2500 through the 4000.

I do a clam 2500 takeoff :D don’t want my passengers throwing up!

Slow and steady wins the race!

Thanks! I’m glad you did :D

Typically around 3,000-3,500, when I’m flying that little rocket Citation, numbers around 6,000 aren’t uncommon. ;)

Anywhere between 3,000 and 5,000. I like to get to cruising quickly.

Real world profiles, 15-20 degrees for initial climb, and 10 degrees and less after hitting acceleration height, approximately 1500 feet AGL.

The bigger and heavier the aircraft the lower the VS. If you follow aircraft on Flightradar24 or flightaware you will see that 747s and A380 have a very low VS around 1500-1800 , while the smaller 737 climbs quickly in comparison, 2600-3200 VS.

Depends on plane.

10-15 degrees, or 2000-2500

I tend to fly B737-900 or smaller jet. With these regional jets, 2500-3000 below 800-1000ft, and 3000-4000 above 1000ft

Airport and airspace can change vs as well. One of my local airport uses an unreal 5000vs sometimes used for 737.
