3 Regional Gliding School The Wing There are two types of wing configurations, they are: –Monoplanes u those that have one wing –Biplanes u those with two wings

4 Regional Gliding School Wing Positioning F High Wingon the top of the fuselage F Mid Wingin the middle of the fuselage F Low Wingon the bottom of the fuselage

5 Regional Gliding School Internal Construction Of The Wing F Spars –they are the main members of the wings and run the length of the wing from wing root to wing tip. The spars are intended to stiffen the wing against torsion or twisting.

6 Regional Gliding School Internal Construction Of The Wing F Ribs –they run from the leading to the trailing edge. Their purpose is to give the wing its framework to which the covering is fastened.

7 Regional Gliding School F Compression Struts –usually steel tubes spaced at regular intervals between the front and rear spars intended to take compression loads. Internal Construction Of The Wing

8 Regional Gliding School Internal Construction Of The Wing F Drag and Anti Drag Wires –run diagonally from front to the rear spars. These wires take drag loads and anti-drag loads, as their names imply.

9 Regional Gliding School Internal Construction Of The Wing F Ailerons –a moveable section attached to the trailing edge of the wing located towards the wing tip. As one moves downward, the opposite aileron moves upward.

10 Regional Gliding School Internal Construction Of The Wing F Flaps –a moveable section located next to the ailerons located towards the wing root. F Wing Span –the maximum distance from wing tip to wing tip

11 Regional Gliding School Internal Construction Of The Wing F Chord –an imaginary straight line joining the leading edge to the trailing edge of the wing.

12 Regional Gliding School Struts A protective housing for the engines. It streamlines the front of the aircraft to reduce drag. It ducts air around the engine for cooling. Engine Cowl Extend out from the fuselage and attach to the wing, for support.

13 Regional Gliding School NOTE: You must use the buttons in the Confirmation Stage

14 Regional Gliding School A B C D Chords Struts Spars Let's try a few review questions on Theory of Flight: Question #1 - What structure extend out from the fuselage to the mid section of the wing? Drag wires Theory of Flight Parts of the Airplane

15 I’m afraid that answer is incorrect Let's try again... Flying Scholarship Program

16 I’m afraid that answer is incorrect Let's try again... Flying Scholarship Program

17 I’m afraid that answer is incorrect Let's try again... Flying Scholarship Program

18 That answer is correct. Let's move on...

19 Regional Gliding School A B C D Spars Ribs Anti-drag wires Let's try a few review questions on Theory of Flight: Question #2 - What is the main member of the wing that runs from wing tip to wing root? Compression struts Theory of Flight Parts of the Airplane

20 I’m afraid that answer is incorrect Let's try again... Flying Scholarship Program

21 I’m afraid that answer is incorrect Let's try again... Flying Scholarship Program

22 I’m afraid that answer is incorrect Let's try again... Flying Scholarship Program

23 That answer is correct. Let's move on...

24 Regional Gliding School Undercarriage or Landing Gear The function of the landing gear: –To absorb the shock of landing –To support the weight of the airplane and enable it to move on the ground. Landing gear may be: –Fixed –Retractable (which provides more streamlining)

25 Regional Gliding School Undercarriage or Landing Gear The landing gear may be: –Tricycle, or –Tail wheel configuration

26 Regional Gliding School Propulsion System The propulsion system of a modern general aviation airplane is generally a gasoline powered, air cooled, internal combustion engine that drives a 2 or 3 bladed propeller.

27 Regional Gliding School Equipment, Radios, Instruments F All instruments, radios, and other various equipment are located inside the cockpit. F A radio which enables contact with the ground, ATC, and other aircraft. F Instruments panel (airspeed indicator, altimeter, compass, etc) F ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitter)

29 Regional Gliding School A B C D Gasoline powered Air Cooled All the above Let's try a few review questions on Theory of Flight: Question #3 - Modern general aviation airplanes are generally. Internal combustion engine Theory of Flight Parts of the Airplane

31 I’m afraid that answer is incorrect Let's try again... Flying Scholarship Program

32 I’m afraid that answer is incorrect Let's try again... Flying Scholarship Program

33 That answer is correct. Let's move on...

34 Regional Gliding School A B C D Absorb shock Support weight All the above Let's try a few review questions on Theory of Flight: Question #4 - What is the function of landing gear? Enable ground movement Theory of Flight Parts of the Airplane

37 I’m afraid that answer is incorrect Let's try again... Flying Scholarship Program

38 That answer is correct. Let's move on...

39 Regional Gliding School Congratulations!! You have now completed the Parts of the Airplane lesson of the Theory of Flight Module. Of course, this lesson is always available to you for future reference if required. You are now ready to move along to the next Theory of Flight lesson you have not completed or to any other module you wish. You can advance to the Self Test Module if you feel ready to challenge the final exam. Good Luck! Theory of Flight Parts of the Airplane
