Boy ScoutsAviation Merit Badge

Control Surfaces


Primary Control Surfaces

Rudder

Ailerons

Elevator


Aileron

The ailerons are located near the rear end of the wing tip


Aileron

controls the roll of the plane

Longitudinal axis


Elevators

The Elevators are located on the horizontal stabilizer of the tail


Elevators

controls the pitch of the plane

Lateral axis


Rudder

The rudder is located on the vertical stabilizer of the tail


Rudder

controls the yaw of the plane

Vertical axis


Control Surfaces

  • Aileron – controls the roll of the plane

  • Elevator – controls the pitch, or the up and down, movement of the plane

  • Rudder – controls the yaw, or side to side, movement of the plane


How the Control SurfacesWork Together for Flight

  • Take off down the runway

    • Aileron - level

    • Elevator – neutral

    • Rudder – neutral


Control Surfaces

  • Straight Climb

    • Aileron - level

    • Elevator - up

    • Rudder – neutral


Control Surfaces

  • Level Left Turn

    • Aileron – left up, right down

    • Elevator – neutral

    • Rudder – left rudder


Control Surfaces

  • Climbing left turn

    • Aileron – left up, right down

    • Elevator – up

    • Rudder – left rudder


Control Surfaces

  • Straight descent

    • Aileron - level

    • Elevator - down

    • Rudder – neutral


Control Surfaces

  • Landing

    • Aileron - level

    • Elevator - down

    • Rudder – neutral
