Propulsion & Stability

Thursday April 23, 2020 9-11AM PDT

Propulsion systems and how pilots manage them have direct effects on upsets and recoveries.  This module covers how turbine powerplants act in dynamic environments and how to properly operate them in a safe and effective manner.  This is followed by a discussion of aircraft stability from a practical point of view.  A flight test background will illustrate how airplanes are designed to be stable and how to utilize this natural stability to your advantage.
