### Abstract

WE first derive for jet aeroplanes the formulae for the least thrust sufficient for a specified angle of climb. In the mathematical derivation of formulae we make use of the method represented by H. Freeman in J. of Ae. Sci. No. 31947, Simple Analytic Equations for the Velocity of an Aeroplane in Unaccelerated Level, Climbing and Diving Flight. We then see that through a simple deformation the equations can be brought into such a form as to make it possible to represent the steepest climbing angle, the corresponding flight velocity and the rate of climb obtainable at a specified thrust by means of a combined, very simple, dimensionless vector diagram.
