Teaching Aerodynamics Part Two:

Objective:

To understand the aerodynamic concepts of how an airplane can overcome its own weight and to understand how resistance to its movement is generated and managed.


Motivation:

An airplane must overcome its weight to fly and must be able to move through the air in order to do it. An understanding of these aerodynamic concepts/forces allow the pilot to understand how to anticipate and manage these forces.

  1. Learn how to correctly explain Aerodynamics.

  2. Live from KOPF & KPAO.

  3. This lesson covers how an aircraft achieves stability around the three axes and the advantages and disadvantages of each type of stability.

  4. Also the forces in a climb, descent, and turn are discussed.
