| #10 Aircraft Stability

October 2, 2010

An at times emotionally moving piece of film, exploring static and dynamic stability on an aircraft. Also looked at are directional, longitudinal, and lateral stabilty, and how the horizontal stabiliser, vertical stabiliser and wing dihedral help keep things ticking over nicely. By no means an in depth look at the subject, but enough to get a basic understanding. For European/UK pilot training course information, requirements, descriptions, listings, flight school reviews and more videos, go to!

    @TarikuKunn Well there is the hot air thing in there. Although you probably won’t be flying over David Cameron, localised hot air can rise up from motorways and other tarmac/concrete surfaces on a sunny day, which can cause an upset.

    You could also trigger a movement, by hitting the yoke or rudder peddles briefly (but hard) by accident. Perhaps during an epic blockbuster style fight in the cockpit, or more likely while snuffling around in your flight bag.

    However what is a real life example that would encounter to an aircraft in place of the wheal or bucket

    Couldn’t agree more 😀
    You are teaching Aircraft Dynamics, Which I know a bit since I am Freeman Aerospace Engineer XD
    I know how to fly a F-16 (that includes using weapons and BFM) using Falcon 4.0 Allied Force
    Check my Video about Turkish Air Force

    @TarikuKunn I thought about that – but realised that would make it WAY too hard to embed my required quota of baby and cat pictures.

    Plus it would loose its sheer rustic appeal 🙂
