Vmcl

The minimum control speed in the landing configuration. This is the lowest speed at which it is possible to maintain control of the aircraft with a maximum 5° bank when full power is applied following the failure of the critical engine while in the landing configuration. This speed is important because it relates to asymmetric overshoot.
