Category and Class of Aircraft and Airmen

  • FAR 1.1 Category:

  • (1) As used with respect to the certification, ratings, privileges, and limitations of airmen, means a broad classification of aircraft. Examples include: airplane; rotorcraft; glider; and lighter-than-air; and

  • (2) As used with respect to the certification of aircraft, means a grouping of aircraft based upon intended use or operating limitations. Examples include: transport, normal, utility, acrobatic, limited, restricted, and provisional.

  • (2) As used with respect to the certification of aircraft, means a broad grouping of aircraft having similar characteristics of propulsion, flight, or landing. Examples include: airplane; rotorcraft; glider; balloon; landplane; and seaplane.



Lift thrust drag and weight
Lift, thrust, drag and weight

  • What makes an airplane fly?

  • Bernoulli’s Principle

  • Lift = CL * (1/2Q(roe)V2) x S

(translation)

Excess Thrust, Angle of Attack
