1 a An aft centre of gravity will increase an aircraft’s TAS. As the CofG moves aft, less tail down force needs to be exerted by the tailplane. This decreases the angle of attack and so decreases induced drag and increases speed.

2 d If after touch-down you have received no exit instructions from ATC, you should exit onto the first available taxiway, ensure your aircraft has cleared the holding position marking, then stop and ask for instructions. Never exit at a runway intersection, turn around, backtrack or stop on the runway, unless ATC instructs you to do so.
