Weight And Balance Control | Weight and Balance control

Weight And Balance Control in Aircraft Why is Weight and Balance control in aircraft Important? Weight and balance control is one of the most important factors affecting safety of flight. An overweight aircraft, or one whose center of gravity is outside the allowable limits, is inefficient and dangerous to fly. The responsibility for proper weight and balance control begins with […]


Spinning The Aircraft

SPINNING THE AIRCRAFT     Introduction Spinning is a complicated subject to analyze in detail. It is also a subject about which it is difficult to make generalizations which are true for all aircraft. One type of aircraft may behave in a certain manner in a spin whereas another type will behave completely differently under […]

Effect Of Sweepback On wing Planform

Effect Of Sweepback On wing Planform   SWEEPBACK Swept-Back Leading Edges This type of planform is used on high speed aircraft and may take the form of a sweptback wing, or a delta, with a tailplane or without a tailplane. The reason for the use of these planforms is their low drag at the higher […]


Wing Planform ( Aerodynamics)

WING PLANFORMS The planform is the geometrical shape of the wing when viewed from above. It largely determines the amount of lift and drag obtainable from a stated wing area and has a pronounced effect on the value of the stalling angle of attack. We will mainly discuss the low-speed effects of variations in wing […]


Stall (Aerodynamics)

STALLING   The nature of the boundary layer determines the stalling characteristics of a wing. In particular the phenomenon of boundary layer separation is extremely important. Boundary Layer Separation. Boundary layer separation is produced as a result of the adverse pressure gradient developed around the body. The low energy air close to the surface is […]


Drag ( Aerodynamics)

DRAG Each part of an aircraft in flight produces an aerodynamic force. Total drag is the sum of all the components of the aerodynamic forces, which act parallel and opposite to the direction of flight. Each part of total drag represents a value of resistance of the aircraft’s movement, that is, lost energy. Components of […]
