Taking the EK 772LR as an example, if that plane was at MTOW and it lost an engine on rotation, how many feet per minute would the heavy jet be able to climb on one engine?
Props to anyone who can give me an accurate number.

(1) The steady gradient of climb may not be less than 2.4 percent for two-engine airplanes

Airliners can climb on one engine, but not very quickly. I actually do not mind loosing an engine during training in the simulator. The plane climbs so slowly that things don't happen very quickly. Its not really all that stressful.

Try saying that with 300 people on board at 760k lbs TOW, at 40 deg C (104F), in the middle of July out of DXB, on one engine... I know what you're saying. Twins are allowed to fly because they're designed to be able to fly on one in all situations, except initial takeoff down the runway.

Taking heat into account - taking off from DXB MTOW in 40deg C heat - can the 77L still climb assuming single engine failure on rotation? I'd assume yes, but the heat makes it much harder so it must be real tough.
