1. what are the risks associated with entering severe turbulence

  • a decrease in the AOA could lead to a rapidly developing spiral dive as the aircraft can no longer sustain flight, this is known as clear air turbulence
  • sudden pitch changes may cause passengers and crew to be sick
  • an increase in the angle of attack could lead to a higher stall speed than expected due to the critical angle of attack being exceeded
  • the load factor being exerted on the aircraft causing lims to be breached
