Hmmm....I'm not getting it much either...if you are talking about FL400...well, that's nice and all, but we routinely see FL430 and FL450 in our lears...with a G/S of close to the same and higher...

Not trying to start a pi$$ing contest here, just trying to figure out the original post and its intentions.

I am guessing you are one of the lucky ones in that sweet IFL Falcon?

731s, check the flight level, not burning much fuel and going for the touchdown.

Big deal. I have been to FL470 in a Falcon 50EX. We have 731's as well.

FL400-FL410 is usually the LOWEST altitude we fly at. Not all that impressive there chief.

As a former employee of IFL, it is sweet if you like to work 26 days a month, and your days off are soft. I think F/O's make about $18K?, maybe more in busy months.

I was kinda thinking the same thing... FL400 is where we start out if we have a full bag of gas... If I fly too long below FL400 I get a headache from the thick air...

I've had a GE Powered Falcon 20 up at FL 410, now THAT is a challenge...

Next time you are at FL400, look up at the contrail that is 11,000 ft above you and wave, I'll be wavin' back...

I think if you move the a/c on the Flight trax over the eastern shore in that picture. Maybe a Baron at FL040, it gets more "props" that that crap. It was another perfect storm today... a Nor'easter.

As Starchkr said we routinely fly high and fast. SO your point was?

This thread reminds me of that joke about the Cessna, the Baron, the Lear, the F-15, and the SR-71.

I'm just waiting for some astronaut to jump in and say, "FL 510!?! What's the big deal? We routinely cruise at 200 miles above the earth..." :D

731's rule...least problematic engine out there(for our a/c size at least).


Oh yeah, and the wind IS at my back...good thing, because i am evacuating all that beer from last night....whew!!!!!
