being equal, a specific power setting and a certain pitch attitude
will return the same airspeed and rate of climb/descent every time.
5-degree intervals and a yellow symbolic aircraft corresponds to the current pitch attitude
Shortly thereafter the helicopter, which was intact, struck the sea in a near level pitch attitude
with a slight right bank.
Everybody knew about a low speed instability problem on takeoff--all pilots on their first takeoff experienced severe up and down changes to pitch attitude
in quick succession, something they called it the "JC" maneuver.
He responded by reducing the pitch attitude
, which allowed the aircraft to accelerate to a safe climb speed.
They have a pretty good idea of power settings, but not the pitch attitude
that goes with them," says Doug Stewart, CFI, DPE and president of the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE).
The last recorded values were a vertical speed of -10,912ft/min, a ground speed of 107 kt and a pitch attitude
However, in the IndiGo flight's case, the pilot gave a negative pitch attitude
and reduced the angle to 3.
Without the landing gear extended and with no trailing edge flaps the pitch attitude
would have already been very nose high.
To ensure uneventful flights, and erratic pitch attitude
, check out TB 1-1520-240-20-107 for the details.
The function of the stabilator is to control the Black Hawk's pitch attitude
The pilot initiated a waveoff, selecting military power with slightly less than a 10-degree pitch attitude
while trimming nose down.
