Here I go again... with different aircraft this time though
In my performance sheets for the A319 - A321, it says that the normal climb speed for the aircraft at "medium" weight is 250kts-->10,000ft and then 300kts from 10,000ft and up. I tried it recently and after I passed FL100, N1 went all the way up to 99% and stayed there.
I know that climb rates/speeds depend on many factors: weight, winds, weather, etc... I was wondering if someone who flies these aircraft could help me out as to a general rule of thumb to follow when deciding what climb speed to use. I.E. 260,270,280,290,300+
Thanks guys for all your help.
P.S. I know you cannot give me a definite or exact answer but something as in a ball-park figure would help. Oh, and one more thing. The A319-112 that I downloaded from IFDG says that its powered by two CFM56-5B5 rated at 26,500lbs thrust, while the CFM56 website says that the 5B5 is rated at 22,000lbs thrust. Please help. Thanks so much.
