Black Tigers on the World of Warcraft
  • A knot is 1.15115 miles per hour
  • A knot is 1.85325 kilometer/hour
  • Fuel is 6 lbs per Gallon so 38 gallons is 228 pounds of fuel.
  • Yokota Field Elevation is 463 feet Above Sea Level
  • Yokota is Zulu +9 hours
  • Pressure Altitude = 29.92 - Current Altitude Setting * 1000 + Field Elevation
  • Density Altitude = Current Temperature - 15° * 120 + Pressure Altitude
  • Maneuvering Speed - Highest speed before wings come off
  • Standard day is 15°C or 59°F at 29.92lbs pressure
  • True Air Speed increases 2% per 1000feet altitude increase
  • When Landing: ---- Power for Climb, Pitch for speed
  • Vfe = Maximium Velocity w/Flaps Extended
  • Vso = Stall speed with flaps extended so=stuff out
  • Vs1 = Stall speed w/o flaps s1(si)=stuff in
  • Vno = Maximium crusing speed, (top of green arc) no=normal operations
  • Vne = Velocity never to be exceeded (red area of arc) ne=never exceed
  • Vx = Best rate of climb (think 'x' as in obstacle to climb over)
  • Vy = Best rate of climb to altitude speed y=into the yonder
  • Flying from one pressure to another "High to Low, look out below!". High to low, true altitude decreases.
  • Nine - Pronounded "Niner"
  • Five - Pronounced "Fife"
  • Three - Pronounced "Tree"
  • Angle of Incidence - the fixed angle of the wing to the aircraft fuselage
  • QNH - European version of atmospheric pressure measurement
  • Magnetic Varitiation - ANDS = "Accelerate North, Deaccelerate South". UNOS = "Overshoot North turns, Undershoot South Turns"
  • Every 100 miles of journey, update Altimeter setting
  • 100 Octane Gasoline = "AvGas" Blue Colored
  • 91 Octane Gasoline = "MoGas" Pink Colored
  • 45° Bank is 1.5G's
  • 60° Bank is 2.0G's
  • Cessna Stall angle is 18°
  • Cessna Maneuving Speed/Max G's is 3.8G's
  • If lost, 5 "C's" - Climb, Conservev, Call, Confess, Comply
  • Parasite Drag - Aircraft body drag
  • Induced Drag - Lift or Suction drag
