Flashcards in V-Speeds Deck (10)
Stall speed in a landing configuration. ; the calibrated power-off stalling speed or the minimum steady flight speed at which the airplane is controllable in the landing configuration.
Stalling speed clean or in a specified configuration; the calibrated power-off stalling speed or the minimum steady flight speed at which the airplane is controllable in a specified config.
Best RATE-of-climb speed. the calibrated airspeed at which the airplane will obtain the maximum increase in altitude per unit of time. This best rate of climb speed normally decreases slightly with altitude.
Best ANGLE-of-climb speed; the calibrated airspeed at which the aircraft will obtain the highest altitude in a given horizontal distance.
Maximum landing gear extended speed.
Maximum landing gear operating speed.
Maximum flap extension speed; the highest calibrated airspeed permissible with the flaps in a prescribed extended position.
Maneuvering speed; the calibrated design maneuvering airspeed. This is the maximum speed at which the limit load can be imposed w/o causing structural damage.
Normal operating speed. the maximum calibrated airspeed for normal operation or the maximum structural cruise speed.
