"maintain 10,000 cross wasie level"


Or, to translate for the pilots: When you cross the WASIE fix, one the needles on the Altimeter thingy should point to a one and  the others should point to some zeros, and the needle on the Verticle Speed Indicator thingy should point to the zero.

Well being a CTR controller in the Toroto FIR on VATSIM, I can tell you that the WASIE fix is on the Simcoe 2 Arrival at Toronto Pearson (CYYZ). When they say cross WASIE level, WASIE is just an intersection on the STAR (Standard Terminal Arrival). Depending on the active runway, aircraft will cross the waypoint at either 10000 and 250 knots, or 7000 and 210 knots. The phrase, "cross WASIE level" simply means descend and maintain 7000 or 10000 and be level at that altitude (not climbing or descending) by the time you pass the waypoint.

It is used to indicate a number of things. First off, 'heavy' indicates that the weight of the aircraft exceeds 255,000lbs.


This not actually correct.

7110.65R Appendix A, Para "a" Under Aircraft Weight Classes states that a Heavy is...

Aircraft capable of takeoff weights of more than 255,000 pounds whether or not they are operating at this weight during a particular phase of flight.

A 747 weighing 254,999 lbs is STILL a "Heavy".

This forum has issues with the Quote funtion.  You can probably find the reason in another thread.

I am going to try and fix this soon...possibly breaking some other stuff in the process.  smiley

If you don't fully fix it, at least make the things after the "quote" something funny.  Right now all I get to see is: [quote:b36eee251e="davolijj"].  

I think it should be something like this: [quote:@!LiveATCrocksourworld!@="davolijj"]

This actually has to do with how often a poster is on-topic or not, as judged by the website mgmt.   smiley

Actually, I was curious if it had to do with the user's web-browser.  I am using Firefox and the quoting seems to always work.  Perhaps how the browser treats actual quote marks?

I didn't realize there was a 'standard' rate of descent or climb. I had understood that the MINIMUM rate of climb/descent was 500fpm. Aircraft unable to attain that rate have to let ATC know.  

Other than that, an aircraft is expected to descend or climb at the most optimal rate for the type of plane and under the experienced conditions.

Where is the 1500fpm figure from?

Most airliners, I believe, climb at maximum thrust, or a derated thrust still close to maximum thrust. Maintaining 250 knots below 10,000ft. To maintain 250 knots, the rate of climb varies. (Pitch controlls airspeed style).

after 10,000ft the Flight Management computer would influence the indicated airspeed to an optimum level. 300KIAS would be roughly the area for most aircraft for this stage in climb, give or take 30KIAS. It would maintain this untill transition to Mach speed controll.

Climbing at an increaced rate while in this mode would cause a reduction in speed. Increasing speed requires a reduction in climb rate, but no change in thrust would be required unless levelling off and maintaining a certain speed.
