    Hi Rakesh, welcome to the forum.

    If it's not too much trouble, would you be kind enough to change your user name to your real first name and last name, please? The reasons for this (and how to do it) are explained here: http://forum.freeflysystems.com/index.php?threads/real-names.497/

    The flight data in the ALTA 8 manual on page 23 might allow you to extrapolate the data you need.

    Thanks

    Andy

    At that altitude there may be issues with electrical arcing. Electric motors at higher altitudes can experience arcing. Our Learjet requires special high altitude motors and the electric AC motor has to be turned off at higher altitudes.

    All that, of course, is beyond the obvious legal issues. Where do you plan to fly at such an altitude?
