Flashcards in Level Flight, Climbing, Descending And Turning - Ch 3 Deck (6):
1

Climbing

Lift = w cos theta LF < 1

Sin Gamma = T - D / W

2

Descending

D = T + W sin Gamma

Sin Gamma = D - T / W

In an emergency; idle, steep AOA, speedbrakes

3

Turning

LF = 1/Cos Thi

Radius = TAS^2/gTan Thi

RoT = TAS/Radius x 60

Rate 1 = TAS/10 + 7

4

Height

Vertical distance above ground

5

Pressure Altitude

Vertical distance above 1013.25 pressure surface

6

Density Altitude

Pressure altitude corrected for non-standard Temps

Determines engine performance

Corrected by entering pressure alt + temp/ISA Dev
