3. How Aircraft Fly
In the first of his clips, Mr. Sinke will take a look at some of the basics of flight.
In this lecture, Mr. Sinke will discuss the first (and most important) of the forces on aircraft: the lift.
The generation of the lift force and the movement of an aircraft unfortunately result in an unwanted force: the drag. This force is the topic of this lecture.
In this clip Mr. Sinke will discuss the remaining two forces on an aircraft: Thrust and Weight.
