We are close to our final FL 230 and the AP has entered the capture phase, VNAV CAP in the annunciator. On he ND you can see that we are close to our T/C Top of Climb. EKCH is our destination and we have not yet entered any arrival route. Sveda VOR is highlighted in green because we have set VHF NAV1 to the freqv 116.20 VHF NAV2 set to EKCH 112.50.This is the handoff from ESGG departure to ESMS center.
One Swiss pilot reports about windshear during takeoff and Malmö issue clearance for climb to our requested cruising flightlevel of 230.
The next thing is that Malmö want us to keep speed 250kts at the same time he gives Bothnia free speed. This is rather common when approaching Copenhagen during "rush hour". Instead of holding over Sveda we can fly with low speed.
Time to check the ATIS at EKCH.
