AVB 5: Aircraft Control - CCPL Fleming - 27 AUG

  1. 1. AVB: Aircraft Control<br />Instructor: CCPL G. Fleming<br />
  2. 2. AVB: Aircraft Control<br />Identify the following control surfaces:<br /> a. Aileron<br /> b. Rudder<br /> c. Elevator<br /> d. Trim Tab<br />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.<br />
  3. 3. Aileron<br />They control the lateral (ROLL) movement of the aircraft.<br />To bank an aeroplane the control column is moved to the left or right. This moves the ailerons,<br />Ailerons are situated at the trailing edge of the wings normally at the outer edge near the wing tips.<br />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.<br />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.<br />
  4. 4.
  5. 5. Rudder<br />The rudder controls the directional (YAW) movement and is controlled through the rudder pedals.<br />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,<br />Increased lift is the result and a consequent slight rolling.<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. Elevator<br />The elevators control the lateral (PITCH) of the aircraft.<br />The up and down movement of the nose is known as PITCH <br />It can be controlled by the movement of the control column backwards and forwards, thereby moving the elevator<br />Altering the aerodynamic force produced by the tailplane and changing the pitch of the aeroplane.<br />
  8. 8. Trim Tab<br />The elevator trim tab is located on the trailing edge of the elevator, <br />It is operated by a trim wheel between the front seats. <br />It allows the aircraft to be flown with little pressure on the control column.<br />

  12. 12. Quiz<br />What is the primary and secondary effect of the rudder?<br />What is the primary and secondary effect of the ailerons?<br />Where can I find the trim wheel?<br />
