Hi Bob,
What is the best approach to answering questions like Q16 on page 9.20? Do I need to memorize the table in Fig. 9.8?
Would calculating the new stall speed based on AOB be required in the exam? (10% at 30 deg AOB to 200% at 85 deg AOB)

Because the exam is multi-choice at the moment, most people can answer any question simply by remembering that 60° of bank gives a load factor of 2 and a stalling speed increase of 1.4 [increased by 40%. If another bank angle is given in the question, you can always deduce the answer by comparing it to 60°. Is it more or less. It would, of course, be better if you can at least remember 60°, 70° and 85°.
