Flight Basic Knowledge

The way flight operation takes place until the completion of the plane. The Aviation field will do all its required to ensure safety in every flight.

The start of the flight training then start with safety. The the second thing will be aircraft parts and their operations. It will be of great advantage to learn the basic standard parts of the aircraft.

let’s learn about the aircraft engines as the source of power. Different aircraft use different types of the engine depending on size and capacity. The aircraft classification according to the engine is the first thing to differentiate them widely. There are other factors that flight training consider when learning to fly. The the aircraft engine is widely classified in operation of the power production. Small aircraft use piston engine while the prominent aircraft use jet engine.

The jet engines are installed on the wing. The aircraft body is also known as the fuselage. Fuselage is where passengers and passel are held. Those aircraft that fly high got their engine mounted on their fuselage. Aircraft fuselage is divided into three section. The first section is the cockpit.

The middle section that contains the main aircraft wings. The stabilizers are small rear wings attached in the last section known as the trailing group. The tail unit hold sub units like radar on the vertical stabilizers and flaps on a small flat wing. The tail unit subunit are used by the pilot by use of interconnected controls to control apparatus. The down and up movement is controlled by the tail sub unit.

There are also some other subunit that is mounted on the trailing edge of the main wing. Ailerons are subunits that are mounted at the trailing end of the main arm at the outer part of the wing. The subunits of the central units are also referred as controls units. Ailerons are used to control bank movement of the aircraft. The control stick from pilot section is interconnected to all control unit.

Let’s learn how aircraft fly by use of the control units we have determined above. The nose up and tail down will happen when the student pilot pulls the control unit up. The push of the same control stick down will do the opposite. The the plane will bank by moving the aircraft ailerons. Ailerons moves differentially by moving the control stick on the right for right barking and left for left banking.

The other controls source are airbrakes on the main wing inner part. The purpose of the air brake is to minimize aircraft speed in flight. The forward movement of the aircraft is generated by the process of engine air suck and back throw that create an equal forward motion. Different engines operate differently. Piston the engine operates differently from the jet engine.
