SOLUTION The pilot needs to know how high above the earth the plane is traveling, i.e. altitude. For measuring altitude, there is a gauge inside cockpit called an altimeter which measures air pressure, to determine how high the plane is flying at any given time. Inside the altimeter there is a barometer that contracts or expands
Lift is when the wing is getting pushed upwards harder than it is getting pushed downwards. If this is happening, then it means gravity is not as strong on the plane as thrust and lift are. Lift is the starting point and the middle of the flight. If the plane is moving upwards, lift is taking place. When a paper airplane is going down, lift is not taking place.When the air is going under the wings of the plane this is also lift.
Ford class aircraft carriers.  In this design the aircraft is accelerated by a linear induction motor where the applied force and acceleration can be varied accurately. This allows for smoother acceleration as compared to steam catapults and permits very light aircraft such as UAV to be launched off of aircraft carriers, a feat which it not possible with standard steam catapults. Linear induction motors work similarly to a standard induction motors except that the stator has been un-winded and runs the length of the track. The rotor, instead of being spun around its central axis is rather pulled along the stator by a moving magnetic field.
Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II (2015) The F-35 has extremely stealth and agile technology, including an integrated sensor package and a range of advanced weaponry such as Sidewinder and Storm Shadow and Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAMs). The single seat fighter has high speed data networking, integrated avionics and sensor fusion which helps to combine the information from off and on board sensors. Pilot will be more aware of the situation and be better able to identify his target and deliver the weapons. Information can be relayed more quickly to other control and command nodes. There are electro-hydrostatic actuators driven by a flight control system.
So in theory to steer, it requires a change of direction in both the velocity and acceleration. An airplane steers while it is in the air via a system of flaps on the wings, called control surfaces. Depending on how the flaps are oriented, this determines the direction that the plane will travel. For example, when the pilot wants to turn the plane to the left, he will activate a control surface on the left wing and point the flap downward. This will increase the drag on the left wing while the right wing stays the same, therefore causing the plane to turn left.
Suddenly you can feel the air pushing unevenly on you, forcing you to move backwards. Just like that gust of wind, flight not only requires air, it also requires a push from the air called air pressure. Again, hold up the paper airplane and point to the wings. Explain that in order to fly, the paper airplane needs lift to counteract the weight of the paper. Ask campers if they think the wings can provide enough lift for the paper airplane to fly.
Trains and planes have very different means of moving, a contrasting aspect between the two. Trains run on wheels, whereas planes simply fly through the air, which is made possible by their specialized frame and engine. One last similarity between the train and airplane is that both are two of the few methods of transportation used to carry vast amounts of goods and products for companies. Both carry products from one company to another, or deliver products from another country or state. A difference between them, however, is speed.
Introduction A rotocopter is a smaller simpler version of a helicopter. The rotocopter displays two simple blades that are re shaped into a rectangle a circle and a triangle as the experiment is conducted. These results allow us to determine how the blade shape affects a rotocopter’s flight time. Although the helicopter looks to be complex and maculate the helicopter and the rotocopter have many similarities. Such as each depending on rotors and how the rotors are designed.

At the undergraduate level, with the exposure to good professional laboratories, workshops and aero-labs my interest reached a new height. My courses at the undergraduate level provided me with an impregnable and across-the-board background in aerospace technology that kept me up to date with the latest technological developments. With time, I developed my interest in aerodynamics, aircraft structures and aircraft design. My urge to gain knowledge about aircraft was not limited to academics; I also took part in Aeromodelling. Through Aeromodelling, my perception of the aircraft structures and various forms of airfoil became quite explicit.
