If Va for the -14 is 169 mph I guess that means we don't deflect full aileron in a 190 mph roll?

(VA is the maximum speed above which full application of any single flight control will generate loads greater than the aircraft structural limitations)

If you want another book, look at this. Very well written and easy to read. lots of common sense.

It will be available somewhere in the States.

To Everyone : About your G meters:

Does yours start at 1, or start at 0? Technically, I know we are at 1 G, but I am used to having the G meter read zero, and then show how many MORE G's were applied.

So if for example you said you used 3 G's, was that a true "added on" G reading, or a "1 plus 2 = 3" reading so you really only pulled 2 additional G's.

G meters have three needles - real time, max +G recording, and max -G recording. It's not a matter of "where it starts". Zero is just one of the values in between the positive and negative numbers. The real time needle indicates the amount of G on the airplane at any given moment. The recording needles indicate the G "history" until you reset them.

Sheldon, Glad you are enjoying the 14..... Please consider what we discussed about duel aero
in an RV, they are very different than a Decathlon as I'm sure you have figured out ��
Stay safe- Paul
