  1. In climbs, an airspeed hold should always be used rather than a vertical speed hold. The reason is that as you climb higher, the aircraft will need to pitch up more in order to maintain the desired vertical speed, which means you will bleed off airspeed and eventually stall. Above ≈FL290, you should be holding a constant mach rather than a constant IAS. The climb profile I use when I fly this plane in real life is as follows: (usually) 200KIAS to 2,500ft (above field elevation, or AFE). Then, provided there are no other departure speed restrictions, speed up to 250KIAS until 10,000ft MSL. Then
