Forces Acting on an Aircraft
Lift, Drag, Thrust, and Weight are the forces that act upon all aircraft in flight.
Understanding how these forces work and knowing how to control them with the use of power and flight controls are essential to flight.
This video series will discuss the aerodynamics of flight and explain how design, weight, load factors, and gravity affect an aircraft during flight.
After completing each video, you will be quizzed on these aerodynamic elements to help reinforce what you have just watched.
We hope you enjoy this series on The Forces Acting on an Aircraft.
