Description

The horizontal line that passes through the center of gravity of the aircraft, perpendicular to its flight path.
The part of the airfoil that meets the airflow first.
The force that created by the effect of airflow as it passes over and under the wing.
A straight line parallel to the length of the fuselage but that runs through the aircraft’s center of gravity.
Mach. A decimal number representing the true airspeed relationship to the local speed of sound.
Characteristic of the aircraft that permits you to maneuver it easily and allows it to withstand the stress resulting from the maneuver.
Motion around the lateral axis caused by deflection in the elevator controlled by moving the yoke forward and aft.
Consists of both the engine and propeller in a small airplane.
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.
Caused by the separation of airflow from the wing’s upper surface resulting in a rapid decrease in lift.
Forces and moments on the body caused by a disturbance tend initially to return the body toward its equilibrium position.
Aircraft speeds under Mach 1.
Aircraft speeds between Mach 1 and 5.
A reduction in the chord of a wing as measured from the root to the tip of the wing.
Forward-acting force which opposes drag and propels the aircraft through the air.
The last point on an airfoil that interacts with the airflow around the wing.
The ratio of inertial forces to viscous forces.
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.

A device that is used or intended to be used for flight in the air.
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.
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.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The United States government agency that is responsible for science and technology related to air and space.
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.

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.
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.
A propeller mounted in back of its engine, pushing an aircraft through the air, as opposed to a TRACTOR configuration.
Of the three axes in flight, this specifies the action around a central point. Compare PITCH and YAW.
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.
The movable part of a vertical airfoil which controls the YAW of an aircraft; the fixed part being the FIN.
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.
oo shallow a bank in a turn, causing an aircraft to slide outward from its ideal turning path.
A four-digit number dialed into his transponder by a pilot to identify his aircraft to air traffic controllers
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.
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.
A twisting, gyroscopic force acting in opposition to an axis of rotation, such as with a turning propeller; aka Torsion.
To land short of a runwway or planned landing spot. Opposite is OVERSHOOT.
A small, stabilizing, rudderlike addition to the tips of a wing to control or employ air movement.
The control wheel of an aircraft, akin to a automobile steering wheel.
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.
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).
Devised for reasons of clarity in aviation voice radio, this is the current NATO version in global use:
An adjustable aneroid-barometric cockpit instrument used to measure an aircraft's altitude.
An Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC).
