An aircraft counters the force of gravity by using either staticlift or by using the dynamic lift of an airfoil, or in a few cases the downward thrust from jetenginesAreas of use The major distinction in aircraft types is between military aircraft, which includesnot just combat types but many types of supporting aircraft, and civil aircraft, which include allnon-military types.A) MilitaryBoeing B-17E in flight. The Allies of World War II lost 160,000 airmen and 33,700 planesduring the air war over Europe.A military aircraft is any fixed-wing or rotary-wing aircraft that is operated by a legal orinsurrectionary armed service of any type.[10] Military aircraft can be either combat or non-combat:Combat aircraft are aircraft designed to destroy enemy equipment using its own armament.[10]Combat aircraft divide broadly into fighters and bombers, with several in-between types such asfighter-bombers and ground-attack aircraft (including attack helicopters).
  2. 2. Non-Combat aircraft are not designed for combat as their primary function, but may carryweapons for self-defense. Non-combat roles include search and rescue, reconnaissance,observation, transport, training and aerial refueling. These aircraft are often variants of civilaircraft such as the Douglas DC-3 airliner.Gliders and balloons have also been used as military aircraft; for example, balloons were usedfor observation during the American Civil War and World War I, and military gliders were usedduring World War II to land troops.B) CivilCivil aircraft divide into commercial and general types, however there are some overlaps.Commercial aircraft include types designed for scheduled and charter airline flights, carryingboth passengers and cargo. The larger passenger-carrying types are often referred to as airliners,the largest of which are wide-body aircraft. Some of the smaller types are also used in generalaviation, and some of the larger types are used as VIP aircraft.General aviation is a catch-all covering other kinds of private (where the pilot is not paid for timeor expenses) and commercial use, and involving a wide range of aircraft types such as businessjets (bizjets), trainers, homebuilt, aerobatic types, racers, gliders, warbirds, firefighters, medicaltransports, and cargo transports, to name a few. The vast majority of aircraft today are generalaviation types.

The Bell X-1 rocket plane, which first broke the sound barrier inlevel flight, is a famous example.

A scale model is a replica of some larger designMain article: Model aircraft
