I would like to ask which of these options is correct:
VMCL is the minimum control speed for:
A) approach in go-around configuration
B) approach in landing configuration
C) go-around in approach configuration
D) go-around in landing configuration
I would choose B but my friends disagree due to Certification Standards CS25.19 Minimum Control Speed stating that:
VMCL must be established with -
(6) Go-around power or thrust setting on the operating engine(s).
However that doesn’t mean that my VMCL is the speed that I use for go-around, right? It just says that to establish my VMCL, I need to use go-around power as a reference.
Therefore I think that VMCL is basically just the minimum control speed during an approach in landing configuration.
