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
