Air Combat Simulator Tactics and Maneuvers
by Richard G. Sheffield
|Minimum Speed||500 knots|
Extended use of speedbrake at low speed or high altitude can cause your speed to drop to the stall point.
- You're flying straight and level (1).
- Extend your speedbrake. Notice how your speed drops to approximately 75 percent of its original level (2).
- Remove the speedbrake and notice how the plane quickly accelerates to its previous speed (3).
Use the speedbrake to quickly decelerate.
