The Axes of an Aircraft


Longitudinal Axis – “roll”

Controlled by Ailerons


Vertical Axis – “yaw”

Controlled by the Rudder


Lateral Axis – “pitch”

Controlled by Elevators


Ailerons


Control

  • Aircraft rolls right


And continues to do so until the

control column is placed

in the neutral position

The rudder is controlled by

‘Rudder Pedals’ in the cockpit

Air Experience Flight Safety Briefing Video


SAFETY ON THE GROUND


When on the Ground

Never approach an aircraft unless told to do so

Never walk towards the propeller. Always approach from an angle that can be seen

Remove any hats in the aircraft dispersal area – Look & Listen


Parachute Fitted


Seat Harness


Rip Cord Extended

ONLY PULL THIS CORD IN AN EMERGENCY BALE OUT!

AND WHEN YOU HAVE FALLEN CLEAR OF THE AIRCRAFT


When on the Ground

If a Jet beware of both the intake and the exhaust areas

Keep hands away from your parachute ’D’ ring

Listen to the Ground crews or Staff Cadets


Ready to go!


SAFETY IN THE AIR


While in the Air

Talk to the pilot – ask questions

Ask to see the effects of controls

Ask about the instruments

Only touch the controls when told to do so


While in the Air

Keep hands & feet away from the controls if you are not flying the aircraft

Listen to any commands, if not sure ask to repeat

Ensure that you have no loose articles in your pocket


Summary

Ask Questions

Ask to take control

Do not touch unless told to do so

Think Safe

Look & Listen


Above all else...

... Enjoy your flight
