13:00 - 17:00 Advanced Aerodynamics - Presented by Ed Solski, NTPS
The workshop is an open forum, interactive discussion between the instructor and the audience on any aerodynamic issue relating to flying business aircraft in normal and abnormal situations.
Following are topics for discussion during the forum:
- The design maneuvering envelope of civil aircraft.
- The definition of aerodynamic stall and how the manufacturers design aircraft to have a nose down pitching movement with full aft yoke at the stall.
- Why stall recovery techniques currently being taught are not used during aircraft certification and must be corrected.
- The effects of power/thrust on stall characteristics.
- How to use the stall line in the maneuver envelope to recover from a nose high pitch altitude.
- The use of power to climb or accelerate in jet aircraft.
- Jet engine handling at high altitude.
- Flame out approaches and landings.
- Maneuver speed (VA) and how it is extremely important in recovery from severe upsets or in severe turbulence.
- What the pilot can and cannot do with the controls at the maneuver speed (VA).
- Relationship between Vmo/Mmo and VD/MD and how they can be used safely to recover from an upset.
- What demons lurk beyond VD/MD;-
− Reduce stick force/g
- Design gust velocities and the effect of weight and airspeed on aircraft loads.
- The 50% safety factor on aerodynamic loads and what it means to the pilot.
- What happens at the ultimate load factor.
