My understanding is that in Europe (OPS1) the Missed Approach climb gradient is 2.5% unless otherwise stated that it is higher. On this occasion we have higher MACG in our performance manual that we can check to see if we can accomplish these with our landing weight.
If 2.5% is normal why is it that we have a page for Go-around climb gradient (also called approach Climb Gradient) of 2.1%. It says for One engine out but so do all the other pages for both the 2.5% and the higher MACGs which of course is the important one as the aircraft has no problems on two engines.
Does anyone know the story behind this Go-around climb gradient (also called approach Climb Gradient) of 2.1%
