|Quoting Skywatch (Thread starter):|
could you accelerate to cruising speed?
|Quoting Justplanecrazy (Reply 3):|
if there is a 250 knt speed restriction below 10,000 feet then why on the ITVV B737 Stansted-Lisbon video is the pilot flying at 275 IAS at 8,000 feet?

What the heck is VClean?
|Quoting CosmicCruiser (Reply 7):|
No just an MD-11 at high gross wgt. Vclean is normally 287-289kts at high to max gross wgt.
|Quoting Vmcg (Reply 11):|
After a high weight takeoff on the MD-11 the pilot usually has to keep the slats extended until FL100, and only then accelerate to Vclean and retract the slats, unless ATC allows him to accelerate beyond 250kts at lower altitudes.
