Edward Hahn (firstname.lastname@example.org) spilled onto his/her news spool: : To nitpick (this being usenet and all), the Service Ceiling is defined as the : altitude at which the airline can no longer climb at 500 fpm. Then prepare to be nitpicked yourself. :-) Since when do airlines climb? Assuming you mean aircraft, I was taught service ceiling was defined by a 100 fpm climb rate. 500 fpm would give some underpowered GA aircraft a service ceiling at or below sea level, I suspect. -- Rich Ahrens email@example.com http://www.visi.com/~rma/ "In a world full of people only some want to fly - isn't that crazy?"
