Identify forces acting on an airplane during flight.Explain why a wing rises when a fan is turned on.
Words students will learn in
this module include:
airfoil, aileron, bearing, drag,equilibrium, heading,longitude,latitude, Mach 2, rudder and wind shear
In session 2-4 you will make a wing and flight it with the wing tester. Students will also learn the principles of flight. When learned about the different wing energy and about how lift and drag apply to how high the wing(airplane )will go. We also added weight on the wing to see how this will effected the wing.
In session 5 & 6 ,students use a computer flight simulator to experience piloting an aircraft. Each student evaluates the other and prepares a written critique of his or her partner’s flight. Students are introduced to navigation and plot a course using angular measurement and mathematical computation.
In session 7 the,simulation software is used to illustrate how materials can be virtually tested before a prototype is built. This simulation process continues into Session 7. By simulating a part before it is actually built, engineers are able to develop new products faster and at lower cost. Simulation data is also recorded by students and is included in the data file that students save or print.
Careers in the field
Being in flight technology is a very good way to help you become a pilot. It help you understand the different thing about the airplane, and help u determine how things work on an airplane.
