    I think you're right......the area of reduced lift is shown incorrectly.
    There's already a re-write of this confusing topic under way. This will include some revised images.
    The important thing to remember is that, to eliminate the sideslip, you apply 5 degrees of bank towards the LIVE engine....

    replied to Rate of turn formulae
    I suggest you stick with the method you are most comfortable using. It sounds as if your ability at Maths is better than most! Many pilots are not used to working with radians.

    replied to Rate of turn formulae
    That formula for rate of turn will be removed from the next edition of our notes. It's no longer needed. The EASA POF learning objectives state very precisely which formulae we must include in our material, which may explain its earlier inclusion, but after the last LO changes we are only required...

  • You're forgetting the fact that, with high pressure underneath the wing and low pressure above, some air will flow round the end of the tip, from the underside to the top. The loss of air from underneath the tip causes a flow from root to tip to replace it, and the extra air arriving above the tip...

  • "Stick force stability" and "stick position stability" are terms that should not be in the ATPL syllabus, because they are only of interest to those involved in test flying. Indeed, EASA propose to remove them from the next revision to LOs, on the grounds that they are irrelevant...

    replied to Question N991400
    I'll make some changes to this strangely-worded progress test question. Under current learning objectives we no longer need to know (or use) the formula for calculating rate of turn. As shown, the formula doesn't tell the whole story about maximising rate of turn, because, at higher speed, we can sustain...
