      Aircraft Essentials

      Getting to know
      your aircraft

      Being able to describe different parts of your aircraft will help you start to learn about the aircraft you are flying and how to identify problems that might pop up. 

      Centre of gravity

      Centre of gravity - this is achieved by balancing the forces on the aircraft and the alignment of those forces.  So the shape is balanced and the weight needs to be balanced too. Think of a see-saw

      Lift thrust drag weight

      Lift thrust drag weight - 4 main forces in balance

      Flaps

      Flaps are on the edge closer to the aircraft. They work together on take off and landing. They usually contain fuel tanks in full size aircraft but not models. 

      Fuselage

      Fuselage - for the body of the aeroplane. Wings, tail, engine and undercarriage attached. Cockpit, controls, instruments and cabin form part of it. 

      Ailerons

      Ailerons are the outer edge of the wings. they move in opposite directions to allow the pilot to roll the aircraft

      Turbine

      Turbine aircraft are the fastest of all models. They derive their power from a model turbine motor, normally operating Jet A1/Kerosene as a fuel.

      Helicopter

      A model that derives it's lift from a main rotor and it may or may not have a trail rotor for control. Main rotor and it may or may not have a trail rotor for contro.

      Scale

      Scale aircraft are miniature versions of a full sized aircraft. They can be models of any tyoe of aircraft that have flown from the earliest days ...
