Introduction:

TheBirds & theBees

If you look around in nature, you can see all sorts of flying creatures, blessed with a natural capacity to fly.

Can you name some?

What do they do to get into the air?

Most animals cannot fly – what factors prevent them?

Introduction:

TheBirds & theBees

If you look around in nature, you can see all sorts of flying animals and insects, what do they do to get into the air?

The birds & Insects all have WINGS that FLAP!

But in humans’ quest for flight, this idea simply did NOT work for us!

As you watch the above video, think of as many ways that you can by which humans get into the air (safely!).

We cannot do that naturally, so what devices do we use to help us?

EarlyAttempts:

Balloons & Sheep!

In September 1783, the Montgolfier brothers' hot air balloon was flown with the first living creature in a basket below the balloon.

The animal was a sheep

… called Montauciel!

Soon after, balloon trips around Paris were all the fashion with wealthy people!

EarlyAttempts:

Gettinginto a flap

NO! Flapping did not go well for human flight!

… So, if imitating birds and insects is not the way for humans to fly, what is?

Flight:

The “Wright” way to go!

After all these different ideas and attempts to gain flight into the air, on the 17th of December 1903, brothers Wilbur and Orville Wright flew 40 metres with a powered aircraft! They called her “Kitty Hawk”.

Human’s had finally achieved powered flight!

Facts & Figures:

Goingaround the world!

The Boeing 737, the world’s most popular passenger aircraft, has flown more than 111.2 billion miles - equivalent to nearly 600 round trips from the earth to the sun!

Facts & Figures:

People inAviation

In 2011 the following figures were published about general aviation:

  • Over 2.8 billion passengers were carried by the world's airlines. This is around 40% of the world’s entire human population!

  • 8.4 million people work directly in the aviation industry throughout the world. This is equal to the entire population of Austria!

In the air:

The 4forces at work

Lift

Generated by air pressure over the wings

Drag

Thrust

Caused by air resistance as the plane moves forward through the air

Generated from the engines on the wings

Weight

All fuel, cargo, passengers plus the plane itself
