Aircraft Performance

  1. 1. ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES ON AIRCRAFT PERFORMANCE
  2. 2. What is Aircraft Performance?  Performance is the capability of aircraft at various stages of its flight.  The capability may be in terms of weight, altitude, speed, distances, gradient/rate of climb, obstacle clearance etc.
  3. 3. Some Facts:  The optimum performance of an aircraft is decreased when there is an increase in altitude or temperature.  High humidity reduces available air for combustion, which leads to enriched mixture and eventually, reduced power.
  4. 4. Effect of Temperature: Any increase in temperature or altitude means a decrease in the aircraft's optimum performance.
  5. 5. Effect of Humidity  High humidity has an effect on engine power.  The high level of water vapor in the air reduces the amount of air available for combustion and results in an enriched mixture and reduced power
  6. 6. Lake effects
