Unfortunately - whenever we moderate, it counts as a post too.
I've been a member/moderator since '08 and I'd say many of mine are reminders and warnings.

Thank you for the clarification, as this has come up for discussion during the approach briefing that is being taught during IFR training.

When I first heard the term “shuttle climb” I thought it perhaps meant that you somehow procured a rocket pack, strapped it on, lit it off, and pointed your nose straight up. The idea being to get out of ATC’s hair as quickly as possible.
I guess that was an inaccurate assumption.

No "rocket pack" required. In my former life we called it an afterburner.
