Best rate on a normal departure

Best angle to clear an obstacle

4
Q

What is the stalling speed in landing configuration

A

45

5

What is Vx

A

Best angle of climb 64

9
Q

What is Vy

A

best rate of climb 76

10
Q

What is Vfe

A

Max flap extended speed 102

11
Q

What is Va

A

Design maneuvering speed. Speed above which is is unwise to mak full application of any single flight control. Weight depended and linear ranges from 89-113 indicated

12
Q

What is Vno

Max structural cruising speed 125 kts

13
Q

What is Vne

A

Never exceed speed 154

14
Q

What is the best glide speed and when is it used

A

between 59-76 KT and used for ER during engine out

15
Q

What is maneuvering speed and when is this speed used

A

The speed at which the A/C will stall before exceeding its design limit-load factor in turbulent conditions or when flight controls are suddenly and fully deflected in flight

16
Q

What is the never exceed speed and what color code is that speed given

A

Red line and it is the speed that should never be exceeded as beyond the Vne the A/C will suffer damage or loss of control leading to damage

A

125

19
Q

What airspeed should you use in turbulent air

A

Va

20
Q

How would you change your flap setting and airspeed for a crosswind landings

A

Less flaps and add half the gust factor to the approach speed

21
Q
