The pilot has lost control authority of the aircraft
STRONG HEADWIND (DURING TAKEOFF AND LANDING)
During takeoff the aircraft will need less runway surface it will also increase the angle of attack
During landing a strong headwind will cause the plane to produce drag to slow down
The aircraft will be more efficient with increase altitude
The aircraft will be less efficient due to the increased air density
Ice changes the shape of the airfoil and decreases the lift. It is a dangerouse condition and naval pilots shall not fly in known icing conditions during the training command.
LIFT EQUATION ( L = 1/2 pv(squared) AC
- L is lift force
- p is air density
- v is true airspeed
- A is area of the wing
- C is the lift coefficient
