It has three sets of wings - 1 pair of tilt wings and 2 pairs of fixed wings, providing the aircraft with an excellent glide ratio
and a low stall speed, allowing for short take off and landing as well as vertical flight.
Other features include the option to assign customised data fields to display GPS ground speed, GPS track, distance, estimated time enroute, bearing, glide ratio
and much more.
He located the nearest divert airfield at Myrtle Beach, swiftly attained a 1:1 glide ratio
, and attempted to retrieve local weather data which was temporarily unavailable.
The MC-6 has a lower rate of descent, lower opening shock, reduced canopy damage, a better turn ratio and a better glide ratio
than the MC1-1C.
Para-Flite's innovative development team has also recently introduced the Intruder, a revolutionary military personnel parachute system and the Hi Glide parachute which has the world's highest glide ratio
Capt Lindsay received an ENG LUBE LOW PFL and immediately turned his F-16 towards Grosetto Airfield, attaining a 1:1 glide ratio

Upon achieving a 1-to-1 glide ratio
to the landing field, Maj Hunter commenced a flawless straight-in simulated flameout landing approach to the unfamiliar and short emergency airfield.
Holding 250 KIAS would not allow me to establish a 1:1 glide ratio
necessary to fly a flame-out (FO) approach, so I reduced the dive angle to establish 230 KIAS.
Realizing the severity of this engine malfunction, 1 Lt Mayfield continued the climb to get to a 1:1 glide ratio
at Michael AAF.
