HOW DO AEROPLANES FLY?
Aeroplanes are huge machines that can fly.
There can be lots of types of aeroplanes.
HOW AEROPLANES FLY
The wings are most important of the aeroplane.Thats the key to making
something fly.Without wings the aeroplane wouldn't be able to fly or balance.
The wings have a curved upper surface and flatter lower surface,
making a cross sectional shape called an airfoil.
PILOTS KNOW WHERE THEY ARE FLYING
How do pilots know where they are flying?Well they look for
geographical features such as landmarks,mountains,and rivers.Or
they can use VOR,DME,LORAN or GPS.As the plane is flying these stations
will stay in the same place allowing the pilots to fly towards them,away from
them or around them.Pilots say that flying isn't that hard.It's just like your
Riding a bike.
What happens when the wind changes directions?
Pilots know how to fly in strong winds.They are trained to fly in these
conditions.Pilots are capable of flying in this kind of weather.
All though is can very dangerous in strong crosswinds.
Aeroplanes are a big part of flight.Without them we wouldn't be able
to travel across the world.As you can see aeroplanes are very clever.
