Example text

Dissymmetry of lift is the difference in lift that exists between the advancing and retreating half of the rotor disc. Settling with power can occur when the main rotor system is using from 20 to 100 percent of the available engine power, and the horizontal velocity is under 10 knots. At a hover, the rotor system requires a great volume of air upon which to work. This air must be pulled from the surrounding air mass. This is a costly maneuver that takes a great amount of power. Ground effect is improved performance when hovering near the ground at a height of no more than approximately one-half the main rotor diameter.

D. 13. Aircraft fuselage and the empennage group. Wing root and the wing tip. Airfoil chord and the relative wind. Angle of airfoil and the airstream. The average temperature lapse rate is: A. B. C. D. 14. This region operates at a negative angle of attack and has no effect. This region operates at a comparatively high angle of attack. This region operates at a complete stall angle of attack. This region operates at a comparatively low angle of attack. Based on the worldwide variation of temperatures with altitude.

Cantilever wing. Symmetrical wing. Wing chord. Laminate wing. Lift, weight, thrust, and drag are the four forces that act on an aircraft. You are correct in making which of the following statements. A. B. C. D. 18. 9,800. 7,200. 8,600. 6,500. Induced and parasite are two types of drag forces. On a conventional aircraft, the propeller or jet engine is used to overcome gravity. The four forces must be unequal to maintain straight and level flight. Only the weight of the aircraft and its fuel must be against gravity.
