Airplane Performance (A4)
Terms in this set (16)
Flying in the mountains as opposed to sea level
aircraft performance decreases
How forward CG affects aircraft performance
increases stall speed, greater stability, and slower cruise speed
What is the standard temperature lapse rate under standard atmospheric conditions?
Temp decreases 2 degrees C for every 1000 ft of altitude gained
Speed that delivers greatest gain in altitude in shortest possible horizontal distance in DA-20
Aircraft with forward CG
will stall at a higher indicated airspeed
Standard pressure lapse rate
1 inHg per 1,000ft
What does Vfe stand for?
limiting flap extension speed
Which factor will decrease the density altitude for a given airport?
a decrease in ambient temperature
never exceed speed
What conditions would be considered Standard Atmospheric at sea level
Barometric Pressure 29.92 in of Hg and Temperature 15 degrees C
In general, Pressure Altitude will decrease with
High density altitude
Reduced overall airplane performance
Under what conditions is pressure altitude and density altitude the same value?
at standard temperature
What is a characteristic of a high density altitude?
low air density resulting in poorer aircraft performance
Pressure altitude corrected for temperature; higher DA, lower performance
The height above the standard datum plane.
