1 Types of Aircraft Flight Instruments Parts of an Aircraft Principles of Flight At the Airport

2 Topic 1: 5 This aircraft can fly faster than the speed of sound, and does not have a propeller. Jet

3 Topic 1: 10 This aircraft has a large wingspan but no engine. Glider

4 Topic 1: 15 This is type of aircraft without wings capable of vertical takeoff and landing. Helicopter

5 Topic 1: 20 This vehicle creates lift without an airfoil. Hot Air Balloon

6 Topic 1: 25 This type of aircraft does not carry passengers or has a pilot onboard. UAV

7 Topic 2: 5 This instrument is used to determine a plane’s height above ground. Altimeter

8 Topic 2: 10 This device allows a pilot to communicate with air traffic control and other aircraft. Radio

9 Topic 2: 15 This instrument shows a plane’s relationship to the horizon. Attitude Indicator

10 Topic 2: 20 This instrument always points to magnetic north and aids in navigation. Compass

11 Topic 2: 25 This instrument shows how fast the engine is running. Tachometer

12 Topic 3: 5 This control surface on an aircraft moves up and down to control pitch. Elevator

13 Topic 3: 10 These parts of a wing deflect to control roll. Ailerons

14 Topic 3: 15 Located at the front of some aircraft, this twisted airfoil spins to produce thrust. Propeller

15 Topic 3: 20 This part of the wing extends to change an aircraft’s lift and drag. Flaps

16 Topic 3: 25 This control surface moves side to side to yaw the aircraft. Rudder

17 Topic 4: 5 This force acts opposite of thrust. Drag

18 Topic 4: 10 This number is used to describe the ratio of an aircraft’s speed to the speed of sound. Mach Number

19 Topic 4: 15 This is the aircraft’s motion about its y-axis. Pitch

20 Topic 4: 20 This condition occurs when an aircraft’s angle of attack is high enough to cause flow separation. Stall

21 Topic 4: 25 This is the speed that the aircraft senses. Airspeed

22 Topic 5: 5 This long stretch of pavement (also called tarmac) is used to take off and land. Runway

23 Topic 5: 10 This location is the communications hub of the airport. Control Tower

24 Topic 5: 15 The airplanes are kept in this large building when not in use. Hanger

25 Topic 5: 20 Passengers wait for the flight in this building (or buildings). Terminal

26 Topic 5: 25 Aircraft use these to move from the terminal to the runway. Taxiway
