I think I finally see the real issue here? It looks like the Brits and Canadians feel that there aren't a lot of crashes due to entering the vortex ring state, so using the term "settling with power" to describe it, is kind of a waste of a perfectly good term, so they decided to repurpose it?

The problem is, in there incorrect use of these words!

If you have "run out of power" then its not "with power"!

If you have "run out of room", but can still slow down, it may still be "with power", but its not "settling"!

Perhaps you should spend more time teaching your pilots to start slowing down sooner, instead of coming up with names for what happens when they don't!

Sorry for coming back in, but I really had to pee! Besides, the mods probably won't even post this!
