Ian Carine Sorry but this is a reject. Your plane was continually stalling for 8 hours on autopilot during which time it descended from its cruising altitude. We all put the plane on autopilot on a long flight and leave it unattended but you should ensure that your plane is cruising safely before doing so. It looks like to your forgot to switch over to MACH number speed control when passing 28000ft. An M0.82 cruise should give something like 470kts ground speed on the GPS at 36000ft. Regards, Ian
Abraham Bhekisintu Zulu I think the rejection of the PIREP is not justified. The PIREP is the true reflection of the flight. There was a problem enroute on the flight and the problem was successfully corrected before the aircraft landed. That should give credit to the pilot. The assumption about the root cause of the problem is not correct. I believe a little investigation involving the pilot would have shed a light as to the real cause of the problem. The problem was cause by the joystic which got stuck in a little bit down pitch position, of which it is something that occured after an hour or so after the cruise altitude and the cruise speed were reached. The autopilot was trying to correct this all the time you see the stall, stall recovered pattern. When that problem was discovered it was corrected successfully and the aircraft landed safely.
