Flashcards in Climb Speed And Calculations - Ch 8 Deck (10):
1

Vx

Best AoC (max) for obstacle clearance

2

Vy

Best RoC for getting to alt quickly and efficiently (most Fuel efficient speed)

3

Initial Climb

Flown at constant I/CAS - same dynamic pressure

4

As Alt. Increases

Lift and Drag remain constant

TAS will increase

Pitch Angle will decrease

5

Climb Schedule

Use to Climb on constant CAS at lower altitudes and constant Mach number at high altitudes

6

Q: RoC at change over alt....

Will briefly increase along with AoC

7

Climb and Descent Rule that works for both

CAS Increases Change over alt. Decreases

Mno Increase Change over al. Increases

8

ECON Setting

Based on Vy and weighted by the cost index

The greater the cost index, the larger the CAS and Mno used in climb

9

Above the C/O Altitude

AoA increases because CAS decreases
AoC reduces
Pitch angle Reduces
