  12. What are your holding speeds for alt remember jet aircraft?
    • 265 - 14,001+
    • 230 - 6,001-14,000
    • 200 - 6,000 -
    • AIM 5-3-11
  13. What is specific range and what effects it?
    • Specific range is the distance an aircraft travels per unit of fuel consumed. Typically this is expressed in NM/lb = TAS/Fuel Flow.
    • Speed (away from L/D max), Altitude (air density), Weight
  14. How to perform a circling missed approach?
    The pilot should make an initial climbing turn toward the landing runway and continue the turn until established on the missed approach course.  AIM 5−4−55
  15. What are limit, and ultimate load factor and where do we find them?
    • Limit load factor is permanent deformation limit.
    • Ultimate load factor is structural failure limit.

  16. What factors contribute to risk of compressor stall?
    • FOD
    • Ice or dirt buildup
    • Crosswinds/disrupted intake air
    • Slow speed high power setting
    • Hot air intake
  17. How is Indicated airspeed determined?
    Total pressure (ram-air pressure) - static pressure (still air)
  18. True airspeed is:
    Ground speed corrected for wind component.
  19. Equivalent airspeed is:
    CAS corrected for compressibility error
  20. Calibrated airspeed corrects IAS for which errors
    Installation, position, instrument errors (usually only a few knots)
  21. Mach is the ratio between
    TAS/LSS = Mach
  22. What affects local speed of sound?
    Speed of sound primarily decreases with temperature on Earth.
