Spectators Balcony (Spotters Corner) If you're not a professional pilot but want to discuss issues about the job, this is the best place to loiter. You won't be moved on by 'security' and there'll be plenty of experts to answer any questions.

We climb at speeds based on weight. The operator for whom I fly cruises at .84 mach all the time, unless a specific speed is requested by ATC. In descent, we carry .84 mach until reaching 300 knots indicated, then 300 until 10,000', then 250 knots below that (generally) unless local requirements or air traffic control dictates otherwise.
