The Bootstrap Approach to Aircraft Performance by John T. Lowry
(Part One — FixedPitch Propeller Airplanes)
You say your airplane's POH doesn't have some performance numbers you
need? Or, because of airframe or powerplant modifications, your
factoryoriginal POH performance section is out of date? Or perhaps you
need numbers for your oneofakind homebuilt? Don't despair ... and
don't guess! Now there's an easy way to calculate accurate light
aircraft Vspeeds, rates and angles of climb, thrust, drag, and much
more. Aviation physicist and private pilot John T. Lowry shows you how.

The Bootstrap Approach to Aircraft Performance by John T. Lowry
(Part Two — ConstantSpeed Propeller Airplanes)
Calculating performance numbers for an airplane equipped with a
constantspeed propeller requires a different bootstrap model than was
used with fixedpitch props. In this promised followup to his earlier
article on performance of fixedpitch propeller aircraft, aviation
physicist John T. Lowry offers a downloadable spreadsheet plus some
guidance on how to use it to calculate key Vspeeds and performance
numbers at any given combination of loading and atmospheric conditions.

The Bootstrap Approach to Aircraft Performance by John T. Lowry
(Part Three — Maneuvering)
Okay, bootstrappers ... time to cut loose and have some fun! In the
first two bootstrap articles by aviation physicist John T. Lowry — Part
One on basics for fixedpitch aircraft, Part Two on constantspeedprop
aircraft — the airplane was kept at full throttle, or perhaps gliding,
and always wings level. But eagles don't soar wingslevel. (Then again,
neither do buzzards.) This article takes the airplane, still at full
throttle, and lets it bank and turn. Since bootstrap calculations are
easy and realistic, we'll be able to calculate interesting turn
performance numbers and bring up some new concepts. To do that, two
downloadable Excel spreadsheets are included: banks.xls, on geometric
aspects of level turns, and bootstp3.xls, details on maneuvering a
fixedpitch airplane.
