5. Takeoff and Landing Performance (lsp_2283_0607)
The most critical conditions of takeoff performance are the result of some combination of high gross weight, altitude, temperature, and
A - unfavorable wind.
B - obstacles surrounding the runway.
C - powerplant systems.
6. Retreating Blade Stall (lsp_2326_0607)
Why should gyroplane operations within the cross-hatched portion of a Height vs. Velocity chart be avoided?
