Flight Profiles

Dear Forum, I have some questions I hope you can answer.

I am interested to know how the entire profiles of flights change between different types of aircraft and different types of routes. Is it possible for me to obtain (or someone to provide) the following details:

Thrust (% max thrust would be ok) and altitude as a function of distance (or time) for takeoff, climb, cruise, descent and landing for the following a\c types and routes (or similar).

I am particularly interested in the cruise.

747 full and empty.
A380 full and empty.
737 (or similar) full and empty.
Learjet (or similar type) full and emply.
Piper Warrior (or similar) full and empty. (this one is hopefull I know)

For the following routes Very long range like London-Beijing, mid range like London-Rome, domestic like London-Edinburgh and very short range like between two London airports.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

to answer your question, a dispatcher would take some good time to prepare all flight plans required, providing he/she's got the entire fleet in his flight planning system...

the pilots could use their quick planning tables in the manuals, but frankly I know just few of them that would spend so much time making calculation just for fun.

sorry bud, I cannot be of help more than this...
