Crossword
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

Aviation Terms Crossword

Crossword
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. 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
