3 Regional Gliding School The Airplane An airplane is defined by the Canadian Air Regulations as being a “power driven, heavier-than-air aircraft, deriving its lift in flight from aerodynamic reactions on surfaces that remain fixed under given conditions of flight”.

4 Regional Gliding School Airplanes may be classified according to: n Position and number of wings in relation to the fuselage, n The number of engines, and n The undercarriage configuration.

5 Regional Gliding School The essential components of an aircraft are: n Fuselage, n Wings or lifting surfaces, n Tail section or empennage, n Propulsion system, and n Landing gear or undercarriage

6 Regional Gliding School The Fuselage The part that makes up the central body of the airplane, designed to accommodate the crew, passengers and cargo. Almost all other parts of the aircraft are attached to the fuselage.

7 Regional Gliding School Classification of Fuselage Consist of tubes (wood or metal) that are usually welded or bolted together. The longerons are the principle member of the truss that run lengthwise. They are braced, or held together, by vertical or diagonal members to form the frame.

8 Regional Gliding School Classification of Fuselage A series of rounded formers / bulkheads held together by stringers. The formers and bulkheads carry most of the load of the structure. The skin that covers the fuselage is capable of carrying some of the load.

15 Regional Gliding School T F True False Let's try a few review questions on Theory of Flight: Question #2 - An airplane is defined by CAR as being a “power driven, heavier-than-air aircraft, deriving its lift in flight from aerodynamic reactions on surfaces that remain fixed under given conditions of flight”. Theory of Flight The Fuselage and Empennage

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

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

18 Regional Gliding School Empennage n Horizontal Stabilizer n a fixed, non-movable horizontal section of the tail plane n Elevator n a moveable section of the tail group, hinged to the trailing edge of the horizontal stabilizer n Fin n a fixed vertical section of the tail group placed in the center of the horizontal stabilizer and elevator Attached on the rear of the fuselage is the tail group called the empennage.

19 Regional Gliding School Empennage n Rudder n a moveable vertical section of the tail group hinged to the rear of the fin n Canard n some modern aircraft have replaced the tail section with a canard - a horizontal stabilizer assembly is located at the front of the airplane n Stabilator n a single airfoil section that replaces the combination of stabilizer and elevator. It is attached to the fuselage at a point around which it pivots.

31 Regional Gliding School Congratulations!! You have now completed the The Fuselage and Empennage 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 The Fuselage and Empennage
