Parasitic drag

The different types of parasitic drag are proportional to the square of the air speed. This means that if you double the air speed, you quadruple the parasitic drag.

I’ve noticed that gathering aviation info can be frustrating. It’s never in one place and when you find one thing it often refers to something else like a FAR/eCFR, or AIM, or the Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge (FAA-H-8083-25B), etc. Definitely a challenge to put it all together.
