  • Stalling speed

    Hello!

    In one of the PPL tests available out there, there's a question as follows:

    A-0041
    Compared with solo flying, when flying with passengers on board, the pilot must be aware that
    (1) the stalling speed is least.
    (2) the critical angle of attack is better, e.i. greater.
    (3) the maximum glide ratio is better in case of engine failure.
    (4) the stalling speed is greater

    My answer to this would be 4 (as greater weight = greater attack angle required to achieve same lift, so aircraft will stall at higher ias), however the answer sheet says it's 1. Any ideas what i am missing?
    Thanks

    I think you are missing a correct answer sheet
