OK, I can visualize that.

I wonder if you can get an air start on a fuelie that way, and if so how much speed it takes?

I got to see a Reeve Aleutian Airways crew do an air start on one motor of a DC-4 out on Shemya Island in the Aleutians in 1965. Then I got on the plane and flew away to Adak on it. I always sort of wondered why they made the passengers get off for the air start if it was safe enough to board an airplane with one engine running.

Yomgui (or Martyn) if you guys can tell us what the definitions of the variables like "Cf" and "Ct" are in the spreadsheet and graphs it would be interesting.

This is pretty much over my head but I am fascinated by the the data and the potential value in it.

Of post a link to a sort of propellers 101 lecture...
