I seem to ne having some issues with Airbus A320 Neo speeds and climbing. Initial climb and speed is fine, however when advised to climb past FL250 to higher altitudes plane struggles to maintain adequate speed to climb on either managed altitude or selected altitude using VS mode. As I type, the aircraft is sitting at FL380, selected airspeed of 285 knots and is going only 180 knots at 88% engine.
has me stumped, everything seems to be in order as far as I can tell. Even using managed airspeed it won’t get up to the listed speed. Any advice welcome or even just to let me know its a bug.
What is the Mach speed you are getting at FL380? Max is ca. .78.
and depending on weight, temp. etc. the Neo‘s ceiling is about FL380 so don’t expect it to climb higher. Normal cruise is between FL290 and FL350 roughly. It is not a fighter jet
