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

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

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

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

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
