Awesome pictures

The TBM930 is not meant to fly that high, not in real life or in IF…just saying


you should make it a group flight if you ever do more like this again and get some really cool shots!

Ermm, do you know what it means by “Service Ceiling”?

Service Ceiling is the maximum altitude an aircraft can fly up to, that does not mean that you cruise at that altitude as you’ll be pushing the engine to the max.

People mostly cruise at FL280-FL300 or somewhere around there but seldom do you see people flying at FL310 in a TBM.
Its the same for commercial jets, the service ceiling of the B788 is 43,100ft but you don’t ever see any airlines cruising at FL430

I’ve seen many airliners like the 787 or the 350 at FL430 even the 747-400 can fly at FL450. For a further discussion you can PM.


TUI flies the B787s at FL430, I’ve seen it a lot same with BA

But that’s recent, right?

Most airliners cruise at their service ceiling now cus the aircraft is lighter than what they would usually be, so it makes sense to be cruising at their service ceiling

Getting off track here people let’s take to a pm. @M1llard
