3.12. Climb Procedures

[In this section insert the details of the climb procedure (or procedures if there is a choice of more than one) for your type of Aeroplane. Use your own company procedure.]

  1. General — The use of all three types of climb profiles described in the flight manual are approved for normal use

    [The specific procedures for climbing through FL100/10000 ASL will vary depending on your operation. Notifying the FA that the Aeroplane has climbed through 10,000 ft unpressurized is not a requirement, but is probably a good idea. The following example is for a pressurized Aeroplane.]

  2. Through Transition, FL100/10000 ASL, FL180/18000, FL200/20000, FL300/30000 — Upon climbing through Transition, FL100/10000 ASL, FL180/18000 FL200/20000, FL300/30000 ASL the following pilot shall be carried out.
Climb Through Transition, FL100/10000 ASL, FL180/18000, FL200/20000, FL300/30000 Procedure


Upon climbing through Transition, FL100/10000, FL180/18000 FL200/20000, FL300/30000 ASL confirm the altitude alert and flight guidance settings:
  • - Check "Through 10000 (or FL100) FL180/18000, FL200/20000, FL300/30000, for target altitude (ie,. 13000 or FL130), Altitude Select."
  • - Check Altimeter 29.92
  • - "Check, Lights OFF, Pressurization Checked."
  1. Interrupted Climb — On occasion it will be necessary to interrupt the climb for traffic, weather, or other reasons. If the interruption is of short duration it is recommended that power remain set for climb and speed allowed to increase. The increased speed would be used for the initial portion of the re-established climb. Speed limitations in controlled airspace may be found in the AIP. For an extended interruption in climb, the Aeroplane should be set to cruise configuration until climb is continued.
