The maximum rate of climb for a given aircraft is 500ft per minute at an IAS of 70kt. There is a headwind of 10kt and you commence your climb from 1000ft AMSL. What altitude do you expect to be after you have travelled forwards 4nm?
Refer to the Maximum Elevation Figure (MEF) shown below.
What information can you obtain from it?
Which altimeter setting should be used to display your altitude above mean sea level?
Which altimeter setting would the pilot use if they want the altimeter to read zero when the aircraft is at airfield elevation?
How should a pilot set their altimeter and communicate their altitude when flying above the transition layer?
Your aircraft climbs at 500ft/min when you fly at an IAS of 75kts. You commence a climb from 1500ft and maintain an IAS of 75kts for a distance of 6nm. If the current wind conditions result in a 15kt tailwind, what will your altitude be?
