What Makes it Fly

Basic aerodynamics. You will learn about Bernoulli, Newton, and that genius Coanda. You will find out about lift, drag, thrust and weight and how they are all in balance. And what it means when they say an aeroplane stalls. It’s all good stuff about the wing and the aerofoil section and the airflow, and the angle of attack. It’s a lot more exciting than it sounds And then we look at the fun bit about how you control the aeroplane with the rudder, the elevator, the ailerons, the flaps, the throttle, the carb heat, the mixture and the trim.
