SESAR Concept of Operations Step 2 Edition 2014 (Ed. 01.01.00)
The cruise climb technique provides an optimum fixed rate of climb and a certain number of intermediate altitude steps (from initial to final block altitude), which leads the vertical flight profile to remain as close as possible around the optimum flight level.
