    A) The flight condition for which an aircraft has minimum aerodynamic drag is important from an aircraft performance perspective. Consider a propeller aircraft (the Cessna 210) which has a constant maximum power available as a function of airspeed.

    For which of the following cases should the aircraft be flown in the minimum drag condition in order to achieve maximum performance? Multiple answers can be selected

    Minimum airspeed
    Maximum airspeed
    Maximum range
    Maximum endurance
    Maximum climb angle
    Maximum rate of climb
    Minimum descent angle (in case of no engine thrust)
    Minimum rate of descent (in case of no engine thrust)
