7 AviationFlaps – 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.
8 Parts 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).
9 Parts 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.

11 Parts of an Airplane Vertical Stabilizer- fixed piece on tail Keeps aircraft stableKeeps nose of plane from moving fromside to side
12 Parts of an Airplane Horizontal Stabilizer- Keeps nose of plane from moving up or downIn front of Elevators
