I am looking to get some planning info about the X. I have the basic Cessna docs, but I would like to know the second segment climb gradients for leaving ASE w/ 6 pax at 0 and 25 degrees, anti-ice off, my guess (?) would be around 32k lbs t/o weight for a 3hr leg with a 1600 lb fuel reserve. I know the flap 5 is probably out of the question for temps around 25 because the rwy starts to get too short at ASE. -- thnxs

according to APG 0 degrees is not limiting for either the runway or climb limit (35700)
26 degrees is 31729
24 degrees is 32062
I will have to run the numbers on my other computer if you want the actual 2nd segment climb gradient.

Thanks, if it is not too much trouble I was looking for the second segment climb gradients at those temps and weights

Okay sorry it took so long but the second second climb gradient for 0 degrees and flaps 15 off runway 33 at 32000 lbs is:
4.7 for flaps 15 and for flaps 5 it is 5.0 so a slight improvement
25 degrees drops it to 2.1 for flaps 15 and flaps 5 is limiting to 31500 lbs. hope this helps
This is off CPCALC
