GENERAL PERFORMANCE


General Performance Online Course starts with an overwiev of basic terminologies including Absolute Altitude, Accelerate-GoDistance, Aerodynamics, Airspeed, Angle of Attack, Center of Gravity, Ground Effect, Lift, Stopway, Transition Altitude etc and concepts such as Importance of Performance Data, Atmosphere, Pressure Altitude, Density Altitude, QFE-QNH Standard Altimeter Settings. The course then focuses on Takeoff Considerations which are Takeoff Speeds-Certification / Performance/ Requirements,Takeoff Field Length, Effects of Runway Slope, The Go decision, The Stop Decision, Wet Runway Takeoff Performance, Slippery Runway Takeoff Performance, Climb, Obstacle etc. The course also includes Climb Performance with an emphasis on climb considerations, climb gradient, climb and obstacle limitations etc. EN Route Performance Considerations and Landing Performance Considerations are other sections where Long Range Cruise & Optimum Altitude Considerations, Single-Engine Performance & Enroute failure considerations, Normal Procedures and Abnormal Landing Considerations etc. are discussed. A short summary is presented for you at the end of the course. This course meets all state authority regulations. Courses are constantly monitored and updated when major changes in authority documentation is released.
