Unformatted text preview: D = 0.02 + 0.05 C L 2 . It is flying straight and level at sea-level and at a speed of 400 fps. The pilot puts the airplane in a level, coordinated turn with a radius of 1500 ft. The pilot adjusts the engine thrust as required to maintain the speed at 400 fps (sustained turn). The pilot next brings the airplane out of the turn to a wings level climb condition, without changing the thrust. Estimate the rate of climb. Assume no acceleration along or perpendicular to the flight path in the climb (straight, constant speed climb)....
