    If Instructed by ATC to expedite your climb through 6000ft would you return to a normal rate of climb once reaching 6001ft or would it be 7000ft? sorry for the stupid question

    At 6001ft you can resume normal climb rate

    I always got a chuckled "thanks!" when I had plenty of fuel to make my destination and bumped my left hand past the full-throttle detent upon getting an expedite request. Thanks, taxpayers! :rockon:

    Show off….

    So there I was… cleared for the unlimited climb out of Midland or somewhere…

    “Tower this is Wolf 703, this IS a unlimited climb in a S-3….” As I zoom climbed at about 2k fpm…. I appreciated the sentiment!

    Had a similar thing, but going down. 4 ship of A-10s coming back from a night tanker sortie. Controller asked for expedicated descent. Lead calls, "Speed brakes, NOW."

    And we came DOWN. Leveled off at new altitude. Controller says, "WOW, I have never seen anyone come down that quickly."

    You don’t hear that much in a Cessna 150.

    I’d first say “we’re going ballistic Mav”!

    ATC: “Speedird 234, expedite descent.”
    BAW234: “Expediting descent.”
    <complies>

    ATC: “Speedird 234, can you increase your rate of descent?”
    BAW234: “Affirmative
    … but I couldn’t bring the aircraft with me.”

    So you need to get down fast?
    1. Retract flaps
    2. Deploy landing gear
    3. Pitch for 360 KIAS
    4. Watch the earth get bigger

    Getting down was not a problem.

    My favorite net-ified version of the Aspen 20/Sled Driver story is still this one, I giggle every time I encounter it.

    Cessna: How fast
    Tower: 6
    Beechcraft: How fast
    Tower: 8
    Hornet: Yo how fast bro
    Tower: Eh, 30
    Sled: >mfw
    Sled: How fast sir
    Tower: Like 9000
    Sled: More like 9001 amirite
    Tower: ayyyyy
    Sled: ayyyyy

    I wasn’t there, but I know the Controller who did it. King Air on a high downwind into Sac Exec KSAC. A regular customer. She wants to do a squeeze play to keep things flowing, asks him if he can make short approach from there. He says yeah, she says do it. He does. A shorter than short approach, rolling level over the fence and plops it on the numbers. He says how was that. She says you was coming down like a Bonanza full of Doctors.

    To expedite my climb I’d have to kick my wife out. Not sure how that would go over.

    I was once asked to expedite my climb. I replied that I was in a Cherokee and it was about as expedited as it was going to get.

    This is way funnier than it has any right to be. Especially when my brain reads it in Airforceproud95’s voice

    Old quote, response to a controller: "I can come down, or I can slow down. I can't do both"

    I had this happen:
    ATC: Can you climb to X in the next 3 miles?
    Me: Unable.
    ATC: make S turns in the climb.
