#16: Angle of Attack and the Stall
3 days ago
Angle of attack is the single most important number in aeronautics. It literally means the difference between flying and falling. Let it get too high, and your airplane can enter a stall, where the wings are no longer able to effectively generate lift. In today’s episode, I talk about what angle of attack is, why it matters, what a stall is, and how we get into and out of them.
