With a full load of 10 passengers, two crew, plus luggage, what is cruising speed and normal altitude?

Quoting Nwafflyer (Thread starter):
what is cruising speed and normal altitude



I'll let a King-Air driver give you a certain answer, but I imagine cruising speed and altitude would be dictated by weather conditions and desired operating economics, rather than payload.

Higher weight means more lift, which in turn means more induced drag, which translates to a lower speed and altitude.

Quoting Ralgha (Reply 3):

A lower maximum possible speed, with a fixed maximum thrust. But, not necessarily a lower optimum cruise speed or economy. If weight is higher, lift is higher; then, drag is higher, and if thrust cannot go higher, you would be right. You may not be cruising at maximum cruise thrust with a lower-than-maximum weight though. And, if the weight is centered properly with respect to CG limits, the AOA may not be changed enough to warrant a lower economy at a higher cruise speed compared to a lower weight.

to continue off topic- as weight increases best economy cruise increases and max decreases


When in doubt, one B pump off

My company has a King Air 350. Generally on short haul trips (<2 hours) we fly at between 21k and 24k feet at 280 to 300 knots. For longhaul we cruise at 32k feet but I am not sure as to the speed.

Thanks very much -- all of you - it's a lovely plane to fly as a passenger, is it as nice as a pilot?
