What I'm curious about is the matter of increasing wing area: If the wing area increases two-fold (weird if, but...), does the stall speed decrease by the square root of two or the square of two (four)? I'm curious because there was an aircraft design which had a wing-area of 450 square feet and a proposed derivative with a wing area of 467 square feet (IIRC), I'm curious if it would be (467/450)^2 or sqrt(467/450) to calculate the effect on stall speed?
