#1 The angle you have to dive to keep the speed will depend on the weight of the plane and going very high only to dive down will mean more track miles and a higher number of energy conversions.
Except you forgot the height we start from is dependendent on the weight.
This is an energy management event where the initial PE=0 and KE=0 not some glider event where you start from 2000ft and can lug as much mass as your care to take to the start height.
