As much as it seems sometimes that airplanes fly by magic, it’s important for every pilot to understand at least the basic fundamentals of aerodynamics. These principles dictate not only how the aircraft stays aloft, but what makes it either stable or unstable.
Understanding these concepts will create a smoother and safer pilot. Take this quiz to test your aerodynamics knowledge.
