### Does more lift cause a plane to stall at a lower airspeed?

Does more lift cause a wing to stall later? (By more lift I mean a bigger wing) (All of this at the same speed) No, stall is related to flow breakdown at specific AOA in a specific configuration (i.e....

### Does more lift cause a plane to stall at a lower airspeed?

Well, the mathematics is fairly straightforward. Because the speed is constant, and assuming the atmosphere is also, the factor $q$ is constant, and we can make the following statement where we will ...

### How beneficial are flaps when landing with a tailwind?

On a windy day there is a typically a wind gradient, meaning that the wind speed increases with altitude. On normal into-the-wind landings, the wind gradient tends to exacerbate any accidental "...

### Does more lift cause a plane to stall at a lower airspeed?

I was looking and saw this question, but the answers didnâ€™t really address why more lift will help a plane not stall. I agree that there's a bit of confusion in the answers to that question that you ...

Stall speed If we decrease airspeed and want to stay level, we need to increase the AoA (actually the lift coefficient $\small C_L$ in the equation below). As we continue to decrease airspeed, and to ...
