Transcript

  • 1. AVB: Aircraft Control
    Instructor: CCPL G. Fleming
  • 2. AVB: Aircraft Control
    Identify the following control surfaces:
    a. Aileron
    b. Rudder
    c. Elevator
    d. Trim Tab
    List the Primary effects of the elevator, rudder and aileron flight controls on aircraft movement in flight about the longitudinal, lateral and normal (vertical) axes.
  • 3. Aileron
    They control the lateral (ROLL) movement of the aircraft.
    To bank an aeroplane the control column is moved to the left or right. This moves the ailerons,
    Ailerons are situated at the trailing edge of the wings normally at the outer edge near the wing tips.
    To bank to the left, the left aileron goes up causing a decrease in lift on the left wing, at the same time the right side aileron goes down causing an increase in lift and the aeroplane will bank to the left.
    This is the primary effect; the secondary effect is to cause YAW, as during a bank the nose will have a tendency to slip sideways.
  • 4.
  • 5. Rudder
    The rudder controls the directional (YAW) movement and is controlled through the rudder pedals.
    This is the primary effect of rudder movement, the secondary effect is to produce a roll as yawing of the nose to one side will cause the outer wing to speed up,
    Increased lift is the result and a consequent slight rolling.
  • 6.
  • 7. Elevator
    The elevators control the lateral (PITCH) of the aircraft.
    The up and down movement of the nose is known as PITCH
    It can be controlled by the movement of the control column backwards and forwards, thereby moving the elevator
    Altering the aerodynamic force produced by the tailplane and changing the pitch of the aeroplane.
  • 8. Trim Tab
    The elevator trim tab is located on the trailing edge of the elevator,
    It is operated by a trim wheel between the front seats.
    It allows the aircraft to be flown with little pressure on the control column.
  • 9.
  • 10.
  • 11. Questions?
  • 12. Quiz
    What is the primary and secondary effect of the rudder?
    What is the primary and secondary effect of the ailerons?
    Where can I find the trim wheel?
