Airplanes vary in size and speed because General Aviation (GA) does many, varied jobs

Single-engine

Sportplane

Twin-engine

Business jet

Turboprop

Cargo plane


Airplanes for personal use and trainingcan be high-wing …

Struts support the wings on each side of a high-wing aircraft


… or low-wing, depending on where the wing attaches to the body of the airplane.


This sportplane also is a biplane because it has two wings, one high and one low.


This biplane has its third wheel in back (under the tail) so it’s called a taildragger.


Retractables fly faster than “fixed gear” airplanes, tucking the wheels inside between take-off and landing


Floatplanes land on water using pontoons or floats. Some also have wheels so they can land on runways.


Seaplanes put their fuselage in the water, and with retractable wheels, amphibians also can use runways.


This is a twin-engine airplane or “twin” because it has two engines and propellers.


A turboprop’s propeller is powered by a turbine or “jet” engine. Smaller airplanes, like cars, use a piston engine.


Turboprops are fast business planes, but can still use small or rough runways


Some business jets fly faster, and many fly higher,than airliners.
