profpilot.co.uk | #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.
