By Federal Aviation Administration

This instruction manual, created via the Federal Aviation management, is the reputable reference guide for pilots in any respect degrees. It offers with all facets of aeronautical info: plane constitution, ideas of aerodynamics, flight controls, airplane platforms, and flight tools. Flight manuals and documentation also are lined, as is really expert details on such concerns as weight and stability, plane functionality, climate, navigation, airport operations, aeromedical components, and decision-making whereas flying. jam-packed with enormous quantities of concise, colourful illustrations, charts, diagrams, and maps, this is often a vital source and gear for all scholars, skilled pilots, and aeronautics buffs.

Sample text

Generally, the forces of thrust and drag, and lift and weight, again become balanced when the airspeed stabilizes but at a value lower than in straight-and-level flight at the same power setting. Since in a climb the airplane’s weight is not only acting downward but rearward along with drag, additional power is required to maintain the same airspeed as in level flight. The amount of power depends on the angle of climb. When the climb is established so steep that there is insufficient power available, a slower speed results.

To obtain static longitudinal stability, the relation of the wing and tail moments must be such that, if the moments are initially balanced and the airplane is suddenly nosed up, the wing moments and tail moments will change so that the sum of their forces will provide an unbalanced but restoring moment which, in turn, will bring the nose down again. Similarly, if the airplane is nosed down, the resulting change in moments will bring the nose back up. The center of lift, sometimes called the center of pressure, in most unsymmetrical airfoils has a tendency to change its fore and aft position with a change in the angle of attack.

L T CG Normal Angle of Attack Normal Angle of Attack Full Power Figure 3-16. Power changes affect longitudinal stability. within a brief period, the nose rises to the original position and then stops, the airplane is statically stable. Ordinarily, the nose will pass the original position (that of level flight) and a series of slow pitching oscillations will follow. If the oscillations gradually cease, the airplane has positive stability; if they continue unevenly, the airplane has neutral stability; if they increase, the airplane is unstable.
