Hi all
Since two days now I have this problem on the MD 81/82 and MD87 Jetliner series...
On climb, with autothrottle and EPR set on CLB i have a power loss pass FL200..suddenly both EPR and N1/N2 values drops,obviously together with IAS, until plane stalls
From take off to FL200 all is great as always..What's happened?

I got up to 35,000 with no problem. I'm guessing here, fuel issue? Fuel heaters on? Engine stall through high AOA?

It's a mystery to me as to why you are having this problem and, IIRC in another thread you mentioned about yellow cockpit windows. Have you considered a re-install?

Your thread has made me climb back into the MD81/82 after a long time, it reminded me that it is one of the best in the F-Lite range.

It's definitely time to reinstall..I agree with you: the MD 81/82 series is one of the best planes I ever fly :)

If you like the 'classics' you might like Captain Sims Boeing 707, 727-100/200 and 737-200 as a step up from the F-Lite range. The are beautifully crafted visually, the only drawback is they don't come with manuals but with a bit of research and trial and error are well worth it.

If you like the 737 you'll like the 707 and 727. No FMCs or auto throttle which suits me.
