Description

What is the instrument that shows the speed of the airplane? airspeed indicator
A collection of instruments critical for the operation of the airplane: instrument panel
What instrument shows how high the airplane is flying? altimeter
The instrument that shows when the airplane is level, banked, climbing or descending: attitude indicator
The instrument that shows how fast the airplane climbs or descends vertical speed indicator
A navigational instrument used by pilots to determine direction: heading indicator
What turns on the airplane? start switch
What instrument shows engine speed? tachometer
What is the control that changes the engine speed? throttle
An upward force that acts against gravity because of low air pressure created above the surface of an airplane's wing is? lift
What force pulls downward on the plane? gravity
A force created by the engine, that gives the airplane forward motion: thrust
This force will slow the forward movement of an airplane through the air: drag
As the speed of moving air increases, the air pressure decreases: Bernoulli's Principle
The moving of the nose up or down is? Pitch
This is controlled by moving the ailerons, resulting in one wing going up and the other down: bank
The steering of the nose either left or right: yaw
What is the maneuver in which the airplane's nose is up slightly, speed is decreased for landing, and the aircraft is positioned for touchdown: flare
Nautical miles per hour: knots
To follow a course to reach a destination: navigate
To slowly drive the plane on the ground is called? taxi
How far ahead the pilot can see is called? visibility
What is the highest altitude the airplane is capable of flying called? ceiling
What are the moving parts of the horizontal tail that pitch the airplane nose up or down? elevators
What are the moving panels near each wing tip that bank or roll the plane? ailerons

Flight Crossword

Crossword
Description

The force exerted by the engine and its propellers, which pushes air backward with the object of causing a reaction, or thrust, of the airplane in the forward direction Thrust
The resistance of the airplane to forward motion directly opposed to thrust. Drag
The upward force created by the wings moving through the air, which sustains the airplane in flight. Lift
The downward force due to the weight (gravity) of the airplane and its load, directly opposed to lift. Weight
The command and control area. Cockpit
Also known as the body, holds all the pieces together. Fuselage
Used at takeoff and landing to produce additional force (Change lift). Slats
Small plates that distribute flow over the wing and help the plane roll from side to side. Spoiler
The outboard hinged part of the wing. It is used to roll the wings from side to side. Aileron
Deployed downward on takeoff and landing to increase the amount of force produced by the wing. Flaps
It is used to deflect the tail up and down. Elevator
it is used to deflect the tail to the left and right as viewed from the front of the fuselage. Rudder
Keeps the nose of the plane from swinging from side to side, which is called yaw. Vertical Stabilizer
Prevents an up-and-down motion of the nose, which is called pitch. Horizontal Stabilizer
Generate most of the lift to hold the plane in the air. Wings
Located beneath the wings, provide the thrust to overcome drag and push the airplane forward through the air. Engine

Crossword
Description

A device used for flight in the air Aircraft
A powered flying vehicle with fixed wings and a weight greater than that of air. Airplane
The body of the aircraft, used to carry crew, passengers, and cargo. Fuselage
Controls the roll. Ailerons
Moveable surface used during landing and take off. Flaps
Used to support the aircraft in flight by producing lift. Wings
Refers to the entire tail section of an airplane, and has 3 parts. Empennage
Controls the up and down movement of the aircraft's nose (pitch). Elevator
Attached to the fin, controls the side-to-side movement of an aircraft (yaw). Rudder
Like the tires on a car it supports the landing of the aircraft and used to maneuver. Landing Gear
Created by a propeller or a jet engine. Propulsion
