We can use it to accelerate, since less thrust is required to maintain our existing lift/drag ratio.
Carried out on the factory-owned C-295, the modification has proved that in spite of the added weight (30 kilos for wing reinforcements and 60 kilos for the composite winglets themselves, and their metallic attachments), the treatment, in conjunction with new PW127 powerplant rating increase hot-and-high performance, as well as lift/drag ratio.
Irregularities have been found with the structure of the right wing to which the rear lift/drag pin is installed.
This reportedly results in an improved lift/drag ratio and reduced approach speeds and the winglet also contributes to lower fuel consumption.
As lift/drag ratios are enhanced, a Blended Winglet equipped airplane climbs faster offering a 6.
Current studies indicate that FAR 36 Stage III noise requirements can be met with projected mixer-ejector exhaust-nozzle suppression technology and projected improvements to the aircraft takeoff lift/drag using high-lift devices.
The EPP provides improved take-off and landing distances by combining the optimization of wing leading-edge devices and a redesigned winglet that results in an improved lift/drag ratio.
The new Bombardier CRJ900 Enhanced Performance Package (EPP) provides improved take-off and landing distances by combining the optimization of wing leading-edge devices and a redesigned winglet that results in an improved lift/drag ratio and reduced approach speeds.
There's good reason to be able to do this, for a fundamental understanding of the basic lift/drag curves that remorselessly govern aircraft performance relate to directly to refined stick and rudder skills.
The improved take-off and landing distances are made possible by combining the optimization of wing leading-edge devices and a redesigned wing tip and winglet that results in a lower lift/drag ratio and reduced approach speeds.
max] directly relates to the shallowest possible glide angle for a given airfoil, or glide ratio, often referred to as a Lift/Drag, or L/D ratio.
