Description

the propulsive force of a jet or rocket engine Thrust
the branch of technology and industry concerned with both aviation and space flight. Aerospace
a vertical airfoil pivoted from the horizontal stabilizer of an aircraft, for controlling movement around the vertical axis. Rudder
the federal agency that is responsible for aerospace research, aeronautics, and the civilian space program. NASA
a structure with curved surfaces designed to give the most favorable ratio of lift to drag in flight, used as the basic form of the wings, fins, and horizontal stabilizer of most aircraft. Airfoil
a rocket-propelled spaceship. Rocket Ship
He was the first American to orbit the Earth, circling it three times in 1962. John Glenn
spaceflight mission that landed the first two people on the Moon. Apollo 11
Moved wind last a stationary object instead of moving the object through the air. Wind Tunnel
Final phase in flight development Flight Test
Principle that states when a fluid moves quickly, its pressure decreases. Bernoullis Principle
a force which tries to pull two objects toward each other. Gravity
Has only magnitude Scalar Quantity
Has both magnitude and direction Vector Quantity
the action of pulling something forcefully or with difficulty. Drag
related to the amount of force acting on the object, either due to gravity or to a reaction force that holds it in place. Weight

The width of an airfoil or wing. Chord
The clockwise or counterclockwise motion of an aircraft. Roll
The angle between the horizon and the wings. Dihedral
A rear vertical stabilizer that controls side to side or yawing motion of the aircraft nose. Rudder
Resistance of the air (technically a fluid) against the forward movement of an airplane. Drag
A rear horizontal stabilizer that controls up and down or pitching motion of the aircraft nose. Elevator

Description

The path of aircraft traffic around an airfield, at an established height and direction. At tower-controlled fields the pattern is supervised by radio (or, in non-radio or emergency conditions by red and green light signals) by air traffic controllers. PATTERN
Of the three axes in flight, this specifies the vertical action, the up-and-down movement. Compare ROLL and YAW. (2) The angle of a propeller or rotor blade in relation to its arc; also the distance advanced by a blade in one full rotation. PITCH
A propeller mounted in back of its engine, pushing an aircraft through the air, as opposed to a TRACTOR configuration. PUSHER
Of the three axes in flight, this specifies the action around a central point. Compare PITCH and YAW. ROLL
A heavier-than-air aircraft that depends principally for its support in flight on the lift generated by one or more rotors. Includes helicopters and gyroplanes. ROTORCRAFT
The movable part of a vertical airfoil which controls the YAW of an aircraft; the fixed part being the FIN. RUDDER
A movement of an aircraft in which a relative flow of air moves along the lateral axis, resulting in a sideways movement from a projected flight path, especially a downward slip toward the inside of a banked turn. SIDESLIP
oo shallow a bank in a turn, causing an aircraft to slide outward from its ideal turning path. SKID
A four-digit number dialed into his transponder by a pilot to identify his aircraft to air traffic controllers SQUAWK
A backward inclination of an airfoil from root to tip in a way that causes the leading edge and often the trailing edge to meet relative wind obliquely, as wingforms that are swept back. SWEEPBACK
The driving force of a propeller in the line of its shaft or the forward force produced in reaction to the gases expelled rearward from a jet or rocket engine. Opposite of DRAG. THRUST
A twisting, gyroscopic force acting in opposition to an axis of rotation, such as with a turning propeller; aka Torsion. TORQUE
To land short of a runwway or planned landing spot. Opposite is OVERSHOOT. UNDERSHOOT
A small, stabilizing, rudderlike addition to the tips of a wing to control or employ air movement. WINGLET
The control wheel of an aircraft, akin to a automobile steering wheel. YOKE
Of the three axes in flight, this specifies the side-to-side movement of an aircraft on its vertical axis, as in skewing. Compare PITCH and ROLL. YAW
The shape of any flying surface, but principally a wing, as seen in side-view ("cross-section"). Its characteristics are Center of Pressure (CP), DRAG (CD), LIFT (CL), Lift-Drag Ratio (L/D), and Moment (CM). AIRFOIL
Devised for reasons of clarity in aviation voice radio, this is the current NATO version in global use: ALPHABET
An adjustable aneroid-barometric cockpit instrument used to measure an aircraft's altitude. ALTIMETER
An Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). CENTER
