(1) The steady gradient of climb may not be less than 2.4 percent for two-engine airplanes
|Quoting Flyf15 (Reply 3):|
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.
|Quoting EA772LR (Reply 4):|
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.
|Quoting VikingA346 (Reply 5):|
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.
