V Speeds
Josh 201604 KWP
OK, so "Approach Speed" is Vref. This isn't really taught much, or wasn't in my books nor my instructors.

Vref is 1.3x Vso, OR 1x Vmc, OR some higher number determined by the MFR, whichever is higher, and the AFM wins over any of these.

The mnemonic for Vso (stall speed in landing config) is "stuff out"... I'd never heard that either, but it helps.
