Airplane Flight: X-Plane in the Classroom

3
Power Loading Ratio of the plane’s weight divided by power

4
Power Loading Ratio of the plane’s weight divided by power Power or thrust overcomes drag to propel the aircraft

5
Power Loading Ratio of the plane’s weight divided by power Power or thrust overcomes drag to propel the aircraft Horsepower is a measure of power

6
Power Loading Ratio of the plane’s weight divided by power Power or thrust overcomes drag to propel the aircraft Horsepower is a measure of power Kinds of Horsepower

7
Power Loading Ratio of the plane’s weight divided by power Power or thrust overcomes drag to propel the aircraft Horsepower is a measure of power Kinds of Horsepower Brake Horsepower (bhp) = power to overcome drag

8
Power Loading Ratio of the plane’s weight divided by power Power or thrust overcomes drag to propel the aircraft Horsepower is a measure of power Kinds of Horsepower Brake Horsepower (bhp) = power to overcome drag Thrust Horsepower = bhp/80% (due to prop efficiency)

9
Power Loading Ratio of the plane’s weight divided by power Power or thrust overcomes drag to propel the aircraft Horsepower is a measure of power Kinds of Horsepower Brake Horsepower (bhp) = power to overcome drag Thrust Horsepower = bhp/80% (due to prop efficiency) Cruise Horsepower = Thrust Horsepower/75% (avoid full power)

10
Power Loading Ratio of the plane’s weight divided by power Power or thrust overcomes drag to propel the aircraft Horsepower is a measure of power Kinds of Horsepower Performance Tradeoffs Greater power, greater fuel consumption
