For your independent project, create an instructional presentation. Create a V-G diagram specific to your aircraft “Cessna 172” at a selected weight and atmospheric condition and explain how the V-G diagram can be utilized to identify specific maneuvering parameters. For inputs on how the V-G diagram is developed, review the discussion in the Flight Theory and Aerodynamics book (Dole, Lewis, Badick, & Johnson, 2017, pp. 229-235)

1. At a minimum cover the following aspects:
• Positive and negative limiting load factor (i.e., the maximum G allowed for your aircraft)
• Stall speeds at 1, 2, 3, and so on G up to the maximum positive G (at your selected weight)
• Positive ultimate load (i.e., the actual force [lbs]) at the selected weight
• Maneuvering speed
• The bank angle associated with the positive limiting load factor
• For the specific maneuvering speed of your aircraft identified above, explain how to numerically find (provide the specific example and values) the associated turn rate and radius utilizing both of the following methods:
• The turn performance diagram (Figure 2.29 in Aerodynamics for Naval Aviators, Hurt, 1965, p. 179 or Figure 13.14, Dole et al., 2017, p. 239).

As in previous assignments, you will need to research a variety of additional information such as required formulas and pertinent aircraft data and/or assume a few parameters for your aircraft. Please make sure to detail those:
