The less dense air also affects the amount of lift the wings can generate, meaning higher unstick speeds, stall speeds etc.

One of our 727-200's out of CYYZ last night heading west bound was climbing to FL320 but ran into a very warm band at FL270. The TAT was +17 C and they had to use engine anti-ice as they were going through some cloud layers. The combination of high TAT and engine anti-ice reduced their rate of climb at FL280 to 200 fpm. The total time to climb to FL320 from CYYZ was a grueling 43 minutes which normally takes only 22-25 minutes.

A pilot like myself who trained at a 5,800 foot MSL airport and then transitions to flying near sea level has a huge surprise on that first landing approach

Which engines did it have? The -7s were never exactly a powerhouse to begin with.
|Quoting Singel09 (Thread starter):|
The last weeks, Europe suffered from extreme high temperatures.
Does this have any effect on aircraft performance, like more thrust is needed on take-off, or longer take-off runs to achieve the same (take off ) as with lower outside temperatures.
