I would like to figure out the service ceiling for Cessna 172N and I couldn't find it anywhere in the POH.

Where can I find it? In POH or somewhere else? If in POH, please post a snapshot of it.

    $\begingroup$ You should use the answer to this question as reference only. The specific ceiling of your aircraft may differ due to configuration or other limitations/alterations and you should use the POH/Reference Cards/Airworthy Certificate for your specific 172 for the most accurate answer. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ How do you find the service ceiling? Start climbing and then just keep climbing until it stops climbing.... $\endgroup$

It is in the Pilots Operating Handbook allright.

Pilots Operating Handbook

As @Dave pointed out, this value can change depending on configuration and other limitation/alterations.


It is in the pilot handbook, before the title page [PDF], under "performance-specifications"
