forces
Forces
  • Forces acting on Aircraft (Level Flight)
    • Lift
    • Weight
    • Thrust
    • Drag
slide4
Lift
  • The upward force generated mainly by the wings that keeps the aircraft in flight.
weight gravity
Weight (Gravity)
  • Force due to gravity cause by the weight the of the aircraft and all of its components
  • This downward force caused by the weight directly opposes lift
thrust
Thrust
  • The main driving force of the aircraft caused by the engines and its propellers
  • This force is directly opposed by drag
slide7
Drag
  • The opposite rearward force that is induced by the forward force of thrust
  • Parasite Drag – Drag caused by parts of the aircraft that don’t contribute to lift (i.e. fuselage)
  • Included Drag- Drag caused by parts of the aircraft that produce lift (i.e. wings)
