Climbs and that Dastardly Torque (supporting role by spiraling slip stream)
Torque is often blamed for the sudden turn to the left, when the tail is picked up on a tailwheel airplane, but precession is actually the villain there.
During climb out monitor your engine temperatures. Once they have stabilized lean your mixtures in accordance with the Aircraft Operators Manual. The cowl flaps should be adjusted after the mixtures have been set. Close the cowl flaps as necessary to maintain proper engine temperatures.
From the end of the Takeoff sub‑phase to the first prescribed power reduction, or until reaching 1000 feet above runway elevation or the VFR pattern, whichever comes first. Initial climb is a phase of flight.

Climbing Ability.-Climbing ability refers to the number of feet of rise per minute or per 10 mm. In order to climb, extra horsepower is required beyond that necessary for more horizontal flight. The machine can, for instance, fly at 56 miles per hour at which speed it requires 43 hp.
Climb rate from sea level flirts with 1,000 fpm at the airplane's 55-knot climb speed. If you're primarily schooled in fixed-wing machines, the R44's climb seems almost elevator-like, ascending at what appears a ridiculous rate because of the low forward velocity.
Climb to about 1000 feet, then further reduce power until the VSI shows a zero rate-of-climb. Adjust power up or down a notch as needed to keep the VSI needle at 0 (always give the airplane a little time to react to new power settings). With VSI 0, you'll be flying straight and level.
CLIMB TO VFR- ATC authorization for an aircraft to climb to VFR conditions within Class B, C, D, and E surface areas when the only weather limitation is restricted visibility. The aircraft must remain clear of clouds while climbing to VFR.
(See SPECIAL VFR.) ...
It climbs like a rocket: Diamond's claim of 1,000 fpm is no exaggeration. Although the two aircraft being ferried were identically equipped, each is handmade and slight differences were apparent. Gauch could outclimb me, but I could go faster in level flight.
Takeoff and Climb
When ready for takeoff, and cleared by Air Traffic Control to proceed, the pilot or first officer of an aircraft releases the brakes and advances the throttle to increase engine power to accelerate down the runway.
Best rate of climb (Vy)
The airspeed that provides maximum increase in altitude with respect to time.
Provides a source of heated air to the carburetor intake to prevent or remove accumulation of carburetor ice.
Banking Turns An airplane changes direction by rolling in the direction of the turn and producing a gradual curved flight path.
Gradual Climb An airplane climbs whenever the lift is greater than the weight. The rate of climb is increased by high excess thrust.
Rate Of Climb. The speed at which an aircraft is gaining (or losing) altitude, usually measured in hundreds or thousands of FPM
To change the angle of the plane's wings relative to horizontal; also, any maneuver in which the aircraft attains every roll attitude ...
Noise abatement climb: Means of flying an aircraft from an airport so as to climb rapidly until a built-up area is reached and thereafter reducing power to maintain climb until the area is overflown or 5 000 ft is reached.
VY = Best Rate of Climb Speed
VYSE = Best Rate of Climb Speed, one engine out
VARIOMETER - A panel instrument, often as simple as a tiny ball in a vertical tube, indicating subtle OITCH movements of an aircraft.
Chandelle: Reversal of course by a sharp climbing turn.
CHATTANOOGA: Code Name for a mission against rail targets.
CHATTANOOGA CHOO CHOO: Operations against rail targets.
Chatter: Excessive, unnecessary talk over R/T
Check Six: Look behind to make sure the "6 O'Clock" position is clear.
Go-Around: Balked approach, when the aircraft climbs away from the runway during the approach, to either start the approach again, or proceed to the alternate airport.
GPS: Global Positioning System (Navstar).
The lead will give the wingman specific hand signals for such actions as: Crossover, fall back to cruise formation, commence descent, turn left or right or level the wings, level off in a climb or descent, change radio channel or frequency and indicate specific channel or frequency, ...
For another it had a fantastic rate of climb and the tightest turning radius of the entire pack. Although it lacked the Zero's top speed and wing-cannon punch, it turned inside of it and climbed faster, with the same power in the respective airframes.
It can also be said that an aircraft has reached the absolute ceiling when it can no longer climb in altitude. In order to gain altitude during takeoff and flight, the pilot can either utilize the aircraft's best angle-of-climb (Vx) or best rate-of-climb (Vy).
The one engine inoperative (OEI) service ceiling of a twin-engine, fixed-wing aircraft is the density altitude at which flying in a clean configuration, at the best rate of climb airspeed for that altitude with one engine producing maximum continuous power and the other engine shut down and ...
The aircraft will usually descend below this altitude in the transition from descending to executing a climb associated with the missed approach.
DH : deadhead leg. A leg of a trip or rotation during which the crewmember rides as a passenger.
Thus, by upsetting the vertical balance of forces, helicopters can climb or descend vertically.
Airflow during hovering
At a hover, the rotor tip vortex (air swirl at the tip of the rotor blades) reduces the effectiveness of the outer blade portions.
Similarly, it is possible to gradually climb or descend without a noticeable change in pressure against the seat. In some airplanes, it is possible to execute a loop without pulling negative "G's," so that without visual reference, you could be upside down without being aware of it.
Missed Approach (or 'missed'): A documented series of climbs and turns; part of every Approach. If, after flying the approach, you don't see the airport, you fly the Missed Approach to take you safely away from the ground and to a known location so you can decide what to do next.
Trim: Adjusting control of aircraft in climb, level flight and descent, so pilot is not required to maintain continuous pressure on elevators, ailerons or rudder.
T-VASIS: T Visual Approach Slope Indicator System.
Formal instructions from air traffic control authorising a specific route or action (climb or descend, entry into controlled airspace). Pilots may deviate from an ATC clearance in an emergency or when compliance would threaten safety of flight.
COMMERCIAL CHARTER ...
The altitude above sea level beyond which an airplane can no longer climb more than 30 m (100 ft) per minute.
A motor-driven device for moving control surfaces and throttle of a radio controlled aeroplane.
A basic guidance mode, providing lateral guidance, longitudinal guidance and vertical guidance to climb then to accelerate, while maintaining a wings-level roll; in some implementations (such as SOA), individual axes can be overridden by other modes (for example, ...
Short Leg--usually a very small distance that does not allow the airplane to climb to an economical operational altitude, so a fee is charged to compensate for higher fuel burns and operational costs.
TCA (terminal control area) A volume of controlled airspace set up at the confluence of airways in the vicinity of one or more major airports to protect traffic climbing out from and descending into the airports.

In addition to receiving your first ground school lesson and an overview of the plane's instruments and their functions, you will actually get to fly the airplane and do climbs, descents and turns. This flight time qualifies to get recorded in your log book.
Landing and takeoff (LTO) cycle - The time that an aircraft is in operation at or near an airport. An LTO cycle begins when an aircraft starts its final approach (arrival) and ends after the aircraft has made its climb-out (departure).
There is another condition affecting flight, which is the aircraft's state of trim
or equilibrium (where the net sum of all forces equals zero).
Some aircraft can be trimmed by the pilot to fly 'hands off' for straight and
level flight, for climb or for descent.
IFR MINIMUMS AND DEPARTURE PROCEDURES (FAR PART 91) - Prescribed takeoff rules. For some airports, obstructions or other factors require the establishment of nonstandard takeoff minimums or departure procedures, or both, to assist pilots in avoiding obstacles during climb to the minimum en route ...
The disadvantage of the leading edge slat is that the air accelerated in the slot requires energy which means higher drag. As the high lift is needed only when flying slowly (take-off, initial climb, and final approach and landing) the temptation for the designer is to use a retractable device ...
