What’s Your Angle?

Pitch plus power still equals performance. Once we decide on the desired combination for different flight phases, we can use it again and again.

In our April issue, we explored the theories of generating lift from Bernoulli and Newton, and how neither of them alone fully explains how airfoils work. Bernoulli’s basic understanding of low pressure above an airfoil is correct, but the math is wrong and his assumptions are faulty. He also doesn’t explain inverted flight. Meanwhile, Newton […]
