gizzard Posted January 16, 2013 Share Posted January 16, 2013 Okay, now, don't ask why an ex-loady would ask such a question, or for that matter, even understand the principles it's based on, but still, here goes............. After slow down on any airdrop operation, would the aircraft be in the slow flight regime, when attitude controls airspeed, and power controls altitude????? I would imagine this would be the case. As the load(s) exit the airplane the CG shifts and weight decreases must really make this a very active time for the pilot.......At normal troop, CDS and equipment drop altitudes, I can see where there is some room to allow for this and stay in the air... it must work, since i am still here, but what about LAPES, when you have maybe ten feet of altitude at the load extraction point.... Any thoughts????? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
