We start this blog with this must-have understanding of what is an aircraft!
First of all we need to get used to the vocabulary and parts of a plane, let’s see this image:
We have different parts in this image let’s start with the easy one the fuselage, it’s the main part of a plane. It’s the part which can hold passengers or cargo or both of them.
We have wings they are the cause of flight of the plane: it produces vertical aerodynamic force so a plane can fly. We will see in another post all the little parts of what these wings are made of and what are their parts. In the rear part of the plane we have the vertical and horizontal stabilizers, as of their name they give stability in the vertical and horizontal planes.
Below the wings, generally, we have the engines. It is used to give propulsion to the aircraft, they are basicly two types of engines, piston engines and gas turbines:
