A pilot is enjoying straight and level flight with little or no control input required. This condition is achieved by the _________ control
The main force which makes flight possible is called _____
When making an approach to a runway, the pilot uses the Flaps. Their purpose is to:
Prevent the aircraft from crashing
Provide additional Lift at a lower speed
lower the speed of the aircraft
Decrease the pitch of the aircraft
There are four forces acting upon an aircraft in flight:; What are they?
Weight, Speed, Gravity and Thrust
Drag, Gravity, Thrust and Lift
Thrust, Speed, weight and drag
Gravity, Thrust, Airflow and angle of attack
An airfoil has the following characteristics:
It's upper surface is shorter than its lower surface
It's upper and lower surfaces are the same length
Its lower surface is shorter than its upper surface
All of the above are incorrect; The upper and lower surfaces are flat
The chordline of an airfoil runs from wing tip to wing root
Which answer is true?
An airfoil develops lift because the airflow over the upper surface travels faster than the airflow over the lower surface. This creates a low pressure area at the top of the wing and a low pressure area at the bottom of the wing. This causes the wing to move from high pressure to low pressure.
The manufactured angle of attack for the wing causes more of the bottom surface of the wing to be exposed to the airflow. This tends to push the wing in an upward direction
Both answers are true
Neither answer is true
The Ailerons control which axis of the aircraft?
The ailerons control the descent speed
What is the name for the section of the aircraft from just behind the wings to the end of its tail?
The pitch and Yaw of an aircraft is controlled by:
The Flaps and ailerons
The ailerons and Rudder
The rudder and Trim Tabs
The Elevator and Rudder
