Chris Holmes Cruise FL300 as the flight is too short to get up to FL350. According to PMDG 737 fmc calculations the highest I can achieve is FL300 with T/C and T/D being very close to each other. What goes up comes down immediately. I have investigated and saw another PIREP also cruising at FL300. Route and flightplan via SimBrief. Departure at 10:30 Wellington local time as per flight briefing. Very nice departure. Wind it up on the breaks and all is good. The wind was in my favor on this flight :)
Ian Harrison OK. Maybe I was a bit too ambitious.
Chris Holmes Haha. Maybe but it was a beautiful flight. Short hop but enjoyable (",)
