## WP: Forces of Flight and Controls

[embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDIg7yVO6zw[/embedyt] Primary Flight Controls are things like: Ailerons Rudder Elevator or Stabilator Secondary Flight Controls are things like: Trim Flaps Spoilers Bernoulli’s Principle is: when you increase the speed of air over the top of a wing, you decrease its pressure, thus generating lift. Lift = Weight and Thrust = Drag anytime the airplane is… Continue reading WP: Forces of Flight and Controls

## Four Forces of Flight Pr Copy

There are four fundamental forces involved and acting on the airplane at all times in flight. They are: THRUST AND DRAG (THRUST opposes DRAG) LIFT AND WEIGHT (LIFT opposes WEIGHT) Watch the video above for a more thorough explanation. Remember that: IN UNACCELERATED FLIGHT, ALL FORCES ARE IN BALANCE (or equal).  Even if the airplane… Continue reading Four Forces of Flight Pr Copy
