How to Calculate Minimum Flight Velocity?
Minimum Flight Velocity calculator uses Minimum Flight Velocity = sqrt((Aircraft weight/Aircraft Gross Wing Area)*(2/(Air Density))*(1/Lift Coefficient)) to calculate the Minimum Flight Velocity, Minimum Flight Velocity, in terms of aerodynamics, also called as 'stall speed', is the velocity of the aircraft such that air passes over the wings fast enough for the aircraft to sustain constant altitude. Minimum Flight Velocity is denoted by V_{min} symbol.
How to calculate Minimum Flight Velocity using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Minimum Flight Velocity, enter Aircraft weight (W), Aircraft Gross Wing Area (S), Air Density (ρ) & Lift Coefficient (C_{L}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Minimum Flight Velocity calculation can be explained with given input values -> 8.794289 = sqrt((1000/4)*(2/(1.293))*(1/5)).
