Pilots, aviation students, kitplane builders, aircraft fleet operators and aeronautical engineers can all determine how their propeller-driven airplanes will perform, under any conditions, by using the step-by-step bootstrap approach introduced in this book. A few routine flying manoeuvres (climbs, glides, a level speed run) will give the necessary nine numbers. High-school level calculations then give performance numbers with much greater detail and accuracy than many other methods - for the reader's individual aircraft.He should have applied one or more proverbial ounce of prevention: ac Take some qualified mountain flying instruction; ac Buy a ... Similar formulas are treated, somewhat more extensively and with fewer approximations, by Miele.7 Those authors express the variables of ... and air speed V . To find optima, they differentiate those expressions with respect to V, set those derivatives equal to zero, and solve.
