I enjoy flying both in the real world and on my flight simulator X. I want to be a pilot for southwest in a couple of years. But to make my flight simulator as realistic as possible I was wondering about a few things. One question I have is what is the rate of climb up to 10,000 and then up to cruise what is it? My next question is what is the descent speed and rate of descent? My third question is how do you decide when to descend, how far out, what is the rule for that? This question is not about a simulator but, why do you have to turn off all electronic devices under 10,000 when some of them do not put out a radio frequency or any kind of frequency like your ipod or PSP(when internet is turned off)? Thank You very much for answering my question and I hope to fulfill my dream very soon!
