What does V1 stand for?
The speed beyond which the takeoff can no longer be safely aborted.
What is VR?
Rotate speed. This speed at which the. Aircraft’s nose wheel leaves the ground?
What does VLO mean?
Maximum landing gear operating speed.
Takeoff safety speed. The speed at which the aircraft may safely become airborne with one engine inoperative
Velocity Never exceed
Landing reference speed
What is the flight envelope
Limits in which an event will take place or predictable behaviour.
Operating parameters of the aircraft
What factors are included in the flight envelope?
- max speed
- Min speed
- Stall speed
- Critical angle of attack
- Max rate of climb
What is continuous Decent Approach?
An aircraft operating technique in which an arriving aircraft descends from an optimal position with minimum thrust and avoids level flight to the extent permitted by the safe operation of the aircraft and compliance with published procedures and ATC Instructions.
Continuous Decent Approach (CDA) allows for a smooth constant angle descent to landing.
