See 14 CFR 25.121 "Climb: One-engine-inoperative" and > 25.123 "En route flight paths" I believe that they have this problem covered. The smaller engine is the same size as one of the engines on a conventional twin of the same weight, so with the big engine out they should climb as well as a conventional twin with either engine out. Of course the size of the smaller engine would have to be in proportion to the slightly greater weight and engine-out drag of the 3X jet. Peter Wezeman, anti-social Darwinist "Carpe Cyprinidae"
