This aircraft can fly faster than the speed of sound, and does not have a propeller.
This aircraft has a large wingspan but no engine.
This is type of aircraft without wings capable of vertical takeoff and landing.
This vehicle creates lift without an airfoil.
Hot Air Balloon
This type of aircraft does not carry passengers or has a pilot onboard.
This instrument is used to determine a plane’s height above ground.
This device allows a pilot to communicate with air traffic control and other aircraft.
This instrument shows a plane’s relationship to the horizon.
This instrument always points to magnetic north and aids in navigation.
This instrument shows how fast the engine is running.
This control surface on an aircraft moves up and down to control pitch.
These parts of a wing deflect to control roll.
Located at the front of some aircraft, this twisted airfoil spins to produce thrust.
This part of the wing extends to change an aircraft’s lift and drag.
This control surface moves side to side to yaw the aircraft.
This force acts opposite of thrust.
This number is used to describe the ratio of an aircraft’s speed to the speed of sound.
This is the aircraft’s motion about its y-axis.
This condition occurs when an aircraft’s angle of attack is high enough to cause flow separation.
This is the speed that the aircraft senses.
This long stretch of pavement (also called tarmac) is used to take off and land.
This location is the communications hub of the airport.
The airplanes are kept in this large building when not in use.
Passengers wait for the flight in this building (or buildings).
Aircraft use these to move from the terminal to the runway.
