Throughout the years of the human race humankind has developed ways to get around such as a wagon, car, bike, and train which have are all known as ground transportation ,but there is also another way to get around which is by air and a way to get around by air is in a plane. Planes are aerodynamic basically meaning that they can fly but there is always the question of how do planes fly what makes a plane travel that speed to reach certain unreachable heights. This paper will be about how planes are able to fly and reach the unattainable skies. One of the major roles of air travel is air “which is a physical substance which has the weight”(grc.nasa). If you think about it air does play a key role because of the low pressure and high pressure…show more content…
First you need to do two months of ground training and you need more than 1,500 hours of flight experience. Ground training is basically flight school that you attend three times a week after that you will do a lot of solo lessons with a sixty hour training course and it cost forty dollars an hour for an instructor. Flying is considered to be taken very seriously mainly because the person who is the pilot has the lives of many civilians on their aircraft.The pilot controls the plane from with in the cockpit which has a ton of controls to guide the plane such as a radar display, direction finder altitude indicator and throttle console, and to control the plane the pilot uses several of the instruments from with in the cockpit the throttle is used to increase the power and decrease power.( The pilot controls the ailerons (which is what raises and lowers the wings ) by turning the wheel counter clockwise to raise the right wing and lower the left which then rolls the aircraft to the right. The rudder works to control the yaw of the plane. The pilot moves rudder left and right, with left and right pedals. Pressing the right rudder pedal moves the rudder to the right. This yaws the aircraft to the right. Used together, the rudder and the ailerons are used to turn the plane.( These are to major concepts of how the pilot flies the plane because of the fact that they help turn and guide the plane to there distance if planes couldn't turn how could they be able to avoid other planes before they takeoff or evn safely go into the hanger without hurting innocent people
