Understanding The Aerodynamics Of Slow Flight

Slow flight isn't just for training. You'll fly it briefly every time you take off or land. Here's what you should understand about the aerodynamics. When you demonstrate slow flight on a check ride, you are required to "establish and maintain an airspeed at which any further increase in angle of attack, increase in load factor, or reduction in power, would result in a stall warning" (e.g., aircraft buffet, stall warning, etc.)
