Q and A video streaming session (31 Mar 2020)

Would you like a live-streamed Q and A session?

It can be hard to learn in isolation. We don’t know when the classroom can return, but could help bring the classroom to you.

Would you find its valuable to participate in a live-streamed Q and A session?
You can submit questions prior to the event, as well as submit them during live chat.

Would you sign up for this?
We would love to hear your feedback.

This is my first post so apologies if this is posted in the wrong location.

I am getting conflicting information from Bob Tait and Aviation Theory Centre regarding avoiding wake turbulence from a proceeding aircraft on take off.

Bob Tait - Climb at Vx to avoid wake turbulence.
ATC - Climb at Vy to give a larger safety margin, providing greater protection from a stall.

Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers.

Vy and Vx already provide an adequate margin from a stall.
