Flashcards in Aviation Deck (186)
The thrust required to maintain straight and level flight at a given airspeed is not sufficient to maintain the same airspeed in climb. True or false?
What happens when speed is reduced
the "live" resistance to pressures on the controls becomes less
When can the pilot best detect the approach of a stall?
when all controls can be moved with almost no resistance and little effect on the airplane
True or false? Heavily loaded ships require a shorter ground roll and less space to develop the minimum lift necessary for takeoff.
False: Heavy ships require longer ground roll and more space
Why is it desirable for municipal airports to provide an unusually long flight strip
for heavily loaded ships in still air
