Basic turbojet engine.
Variation of thrust with rpm.
Typical jet engine acceleration times.
Jet airspeed indicator.
Transonic flow patterns.
Thrust and power required curves (jet aircraft vs. propeller-driven aircraft).
Stall versus angle of attack—swept wing versus straight wing.
Unmodified swept wing stall characteristics.
Sample captain’s briefing.
Sample takeoff and departure profile.
Typical descent profile.
Effect of speed on descent path.
FAR landing field length required.
Typical approach and landing profile.
