Transport Jet Performance

Just about the time an engine goes BANG is not the place or time for and academic discussion quoting regulations for aircraft certification. Practical application of performance numbers and contingency procedures begin with a true appreciation for what an aircraft can do for you, where regulators and procedure designers are providing you numbers and subtle warnings backed up by procedures that can give bold cautions for your operation.
