The present results (8.9 [+ or -] 0.9) diverge from Scholey (1986) who recorded mean air speed (15.1 [+ or -] 3.2) for P petaurista and also in previous studies, the gliding speed
of P leucogenys were 7 and 15.1 m [s.sup.-1] (Ando and Shiraishi 1993) and 3.03-8.89 m [s.sup.-1] (Stafford et al.
Instead, 42-year-old Gary Connery relied on physics to guide him to safety by wearing a specially developed wing suit that created enough drag to slow his gliding speed
down to 50 mph and his vertical falling speed to 15 mph in the moments before he landed.
In order to successfully complete the audacious stunt, Connery had to flare his wing suit about 200ft from his target in order to bring his gliding speed
down to 50mph and his vertical falling speed to 15mph.
Once you're near an airport or are overhead, consider slowing to the best gliding speed
for minimum descent rate.
An experienced operational commander warned his crews: "Observers must be cautioned that when gliding down from work over the lines, they must not stand to look over the pilot's shoulder for the fun of the thing as the extra head resistance caused may lead to the aeroplane falling below the critical gliding speed
and so bring about an accident."
A GRANDMOTHER was still on cloud nine yesterday after breaking the women's world para gliding speed
On the other hand, water temperature did not seem to have any clear effect on the gliding speeds
