    30. Part of an Airplane

    31. Instruments Attitude Indicator Altimeter Vertical Speed Indicator Heading Indicator Turn Coordinator Airspeed Indicator

    32. Attitude Indicator • Displays an aircrafts pitch and bank with a gyro stabilized bar which remains parallel to the horizon.

    33. Turn Coordinator • Detects motion about the roll and yaw axes of an aircraft by utilizing the property of gyroscopic precession.

    34. Heading Indicator • A gyro that gives a more stable indication of an aircrafts heading than a magnetic compass.

    35. Airspeed Indicator • A pressure gauge that is calibrated to convert the difference betweenimpact (or ram) air pressure due to an aircrafts motion andthe local static air pressure into a reading of velocity thought the air mass.

    36. Altimeter • Tells you your altitude by measuring air pressure.

    37. Vertical Speed Indicator • Measures the rate of change of air pressure as the plane climbs or descends.

    38. Four Forces Lift Drag Thrust Weight

    39. Airfoil - Lift

    40. Propeller - Thrust

    41. Control Surfaces

    42. Directional Control

    43. Take Off • Ailerons - (Roll) • Elevators – (Pitch) • Rudders – (Yaw)

    44. Straight Flight • Ailerons - (Roll) • Elevators – (Pitch) • Rudders – (Yaw)

    45. Banking • Ailerons - (Roll) • Elevators – (Pitch) • Rudders – (Yaw)
