Title:
Speed to Fly Theory - What Is It and Why Should I Care?
Topic:
An introduction to SPEED TO FLY theory
Date and Time:
Tuesday, February 19, 2019, starting at 20:00 Eastern Standard Time (17:00 PST, 18:00 MST, 19:00 CST, 15:00 HST, 16:00 AKST, 18:00 Arizona, 01:00 GMT)
Speaker(s):
Eric Carden
Brief Description:

While on glide, a pilot's two most important performance-related decisions are how fast to fly and in what direction. This webinar discusses the former. Toward that end, it discusses classic MacCready speed-to-fly (STF) theory, how to use your STF-capable flight computer, when to temper or even ignore STF theory, and final glide. Even the best pilots never know for sure (till perhaps after they've landed) whether they were flying the optimum speed at any given time!
