Climb, Talk, Live
Getting a pop-up IFR clearance isn't difficult. The hard part is knowing when you need one and acknowledging it's the best solution.

Climbout speed, with respect to rotorcraft, - 14 CFR 1.1
Tags: 14 CFR 1.1, FAA, Regulatory ...
Power Required vs Available at different altitudes
This can be expressed in speed, rate of climb and the angle of climb and is defined as follows: ...
Climb to an altitude h, and set the power to cruise at an airspeed V. Note the ambient temperature, altitude, engine RPM, and the mainfold pressure. Repeat this step for different speeds.
The performance in in climb is dictated by the engine power. Every aircraft design has a best angle of climb (Vy) which is the airspeed that will give the maximum increase in height in a given time.
Climbout by the Museum of Science
Here you can see the Museum of Science, with the Charles River in the background.
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.
That portion of flight operation between takeoff and the initial cruising altitude.
Rate of Climb Indicator: An aeroplane instrument which shows the rate at which a change of height is taking place.
Recalescence Point: The point on the cooling curve of a steel where carbides are precipitated.
Climbs and climbing turns are basic flight maneuvers in which the pitch attitude and power setting result in a gain in altitude. In a straight climb, the airplane gains altitude while traveling straight ahead.
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.
Climb rate from sea level flirts with 1,000 fpm at the airplane's 55-knot climb speed.
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).
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.
Climb at constant airspeed: VX.
Table 13.4: Basic Takeoff Procedures
Additionally, in each of the four cases, you must take into account the crosswind if any.
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.
RATE OF CLIMB (ROC)
The speed at which an aircraft is gaining (or losing) altitude, usually measured in hundreds or thousands of FPM.
RATE OF ROLL
A measure of the speed with which an airplane can turn around its long axis, or roll.

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.
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.
You will have an idea of the climb performance by calculating W/S x W/ BHP = P
Where W = gross weight (lbs.)
S = wing area (sq. ft.) ...
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.
Collective Pitch: A cockpit control that changes the PITCH of a helicopter's rotor blades: used in climbing or descend
Collector Ring: A circular duct on a radial engine into which exhaust gases from its cylinders are safely discharged ...
Chandelle: Reversal of course by a sharp climbing turn.
CHATTANOOGA: Code Name for a mission against rail targets.

VX: best angle of climb speed on all engines.
VXSE: best engine-out angle of climb speed.
VY: best rate of climb speed on all engines.
For another it had a fantastic rate of climb and the tightest turning radius of the entire pack.
It can also be said that an aircraft has reached the absolute ceiling when it can no longer climb in altitude.
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 ...
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.

When used in conjunction with altitude assignments, means that ATC has offered the pilot the option of starting climb or descent whenever the pilot wishes.
Similarly, it is possible to gradually climb or descend without a noticeable change in pressure against the seat.
Missed Approach (or 'missed'): A documented series of climbs and turns; part of every Approach.
Causes the model to raise or lower its nose, resulting in a climbing or diving response. Moving the elevator down causes the tail to rise, pushing the nose down and causing the model to dive.
Vy: speed for best RATE of climb.
Vx: speed for best ANGLE of climb.
WAT: Weight, Altitude, Temperature. Variables that affect takeoff performance.
Elevator illusion. The sensation of being in a climb or descent, caused by the kind of abrupt vertical accelerations that result from up- or downdrafts.
Emergency. A distress or urgent condition.
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.
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.
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), ...
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.
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 ...
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 altitude.
POA : Phase of Accident (phases of a flight : taxi, take off, climb, cruise, approach, descend, landing,
ground, push back, test flight).
PCOA : Probable Cause of Accident (human factor, technical, weather/environment).
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 which closes at higher speeds to reduce drag.
Vso - Aircraft are certified with a variety of critical speeds generically referred to as “V speeds' that tell the pilot the best glide speed, speed to achieve the best rate of climb, the stall speed, minimum controllable speed, ...
