Aerospace Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

This crossword contains the following questions and answers:

The horizontal line that passes through the center of gravity of the aircraft, perpendicular to its flight path. Lateral Axis
The part of the airfoil that meets the airflow first. Leading Edge
The force that created by the effect of airflow as it passes over and under the wing. Lift
A straight line parallel to the length of the fuselage but that runs through the aircraft’s center of gravity. Longitudinal Axis
Mach. A decimal number representing the true airspeed relationship to the local speed of sound. M
Characteristic of the aircraft that permits you to maneuver it easily and allows it to withstand the stress resulting from the maneuver. Maneuverability
Motion around the lateral axis caused by deflection in the elevator controlled by moving the yoke forward and aft. Pitch
Consists of both the engine and propeller in a small airplane. Powerplant
Aircraft stability is the characteristic of an airplane in flight that causes it to return to a condition of equilibrium, or steady flight, after it is disturbed. Stability
Caused by the separation of airflow from the wing’s upper surface resulting in a rapid decrease in lift. Stall
Forces and moments on the body caused by a disturbance tend initially to return the body toward its equilibrium position. Static Stability
Aircraft speeds under Mach 1. Subsonic
Aircraft speeds between Mach 1 and 5. Supersonic
A reduction in the chord of a wing as measured from the root to the tip of the wing. Taper
Forward-acting force which opposes drag and propels the aircraft through the air. Thrust
The last point on an airfoil that interacts with the airflow around the wing. Trailing Edge
The ratio of inertial forces to viscous forces. Reynolds Number
Develops new technologies for use in aviation, defense systems, and space exploration, often specializing in areas such as structural design, guidance, navigation and control, instrumentation and communication, and production methods. Aerospace Engineer
Develops new technologies for use in aviation, defense systems, and space exploration, often specializing in areas such as structural design, guidance, navigation and control, instrumentation and communication, and production methods. Aerospace Engineer
A device that is used or intended to be used for flight in the air. Aircraft
Air Traffic Control, A system is to prevent a collision between aircraft operating in the system and to organize and expedite the flow of traffic, and to provide support for National Security and Homeland Defense. ATC
Federal Aviation Administration. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration is an operating mode of the Department of Transportation responsible for the safety of civil aviation. FAA
National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The United States government agency that is responsible for science and technology related to air and space. NASA
National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. From March 3, 1915 until October 1, 1958, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) provided advice and carried out much of the cutting-edge research in aeronautics in the United States. NACA

Aviation Terms Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

This crossword contains the following questions and answers:

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
