3Parts of an Airplane Fuselage- The main body of an Airplane. Houses cockpit, passengers, cargo
4Parts of an Airplane Landing gear- Underneath the airplane contains wheels, floats, etc. of an aircraft.lands and moves on ground or water.
5Parts of the PlanePropeller- A propeller is a rotating blade on the front of the airplane.The engine turns the propeller, which pulls the airplane through the air.
6Parts of an AirplaneWings – Wings are the parts of the airplane that provide lift.They also support the entire weight of the aircraft and its contents while in flight.
7AviationFlaps – Flaps are the movable sections of an airplane’s wings that are closest to the fuselage.They move in the same direction on both wings at the same time,and, by creating drag and lift, enable the airplane to fly more slowly.
8Parts of an AirplaneAilerons –movable sections on an outer edge of an airplane ’s wings.They move in opposite directions(when one goes up, the other goes down).
9Parts of an AirplaneRudder –movable, vertical section of the tail that controls lateral movement.(side-to-side)When the rudder moves in one direction,the aircraft nose moves the same direction.
10Parts of an Airplane When the elevator moves one direction, Elevator –movable, horizontal section of the tail that causes the airplane to climb and descend.When the elevator moves one direction,the nose moves in the same direction(up or down).
11Parts of an Airplane Vertical Stabilizer- fixed piece on tail Keeps aircraft stableKeeps nose of plane from moving fromside to side
12Parts of an Airplane Horizontal Stabilizer- Keeps nose of plane from moving up or downIn front of Elevators
