Making the Aircraft Fly

the angle of attack (AoA) is the angle between the chord and the horizontal of the wing
- false

you can't change the angle of attack in flight
- false

to increase the angle of attack is the only way to get lift
- false

to reduce the angle of attack is the only way to descend
- false

increased airspeed in level flight requires a smaller angle of attack
- true

without affecting the stall speed the use of flaps give more lift
- false

one wing will always stall at the same airspeed
- false

reduce the stall speed by increasing power
- true

for a high speed stall you must be more than 1g
- true

the s stands for speed in the lift formula
- false (its surface area)

with speed the wingtip vortex drag increases

- false


in a turn induced drag increases

- true


total drag increases with the square of speed

- false


total drag is the sum of vortex drag and the drag caused by total reaction leaning back

- false


on final approach, flaps should be used to give a steep descent

- false


drag is at its least when you fly at the slowest and most economical speed

- false


streamlining can reduce parasite drag

- true


skin friction increases with the square of the speed

- true


general drag is four times as much at 150kts as it is at 75kts

- true


covering the greatest distance on the available fuel you need to fly at best endurance speed

- false

the elevator has no secondary effect

- false


roll is the secondary effect of the rudder

- true


pitch is the secondary effect of the aileron

- false


lateral axis is where an aircraft rolls about

- false


fore-and-aft axis is where an aircraft pitches about

- false


vertical axis is where an aircraft yaws

- true


pitch is the primary effect of the elevator

- true


roll is the primary effect of the rudder

- false


control roll by using the ailerons

- true


spiral dive is the secondary effect of the elevator

- false

drag is increased with the use of flaps

- true


minimum flying speed is decreased with the use of flaps

- true


the nose pitches up with the increase of power

- true


in a clockwise prop, the torque tends to roll the aircraft to the right

- false


slipstream tends to turns plane to the left

- true


in the climb, right rudder trim is normally used

- true


prop rotation can cause gyroscopic effect

- true


the right rudder opposes asymmetric blade effect

- true


increased aileron response comes with increased thrust

- false


for take off, use large flap setting

- false
