Topic 1: 5
This aircraft can fly faster than the speed of
sound, and does not have a propeller.
Jet
Topic 1: 10
This aircraft has a large wingspan but no engine.
Glider
Topic 1: 15
This is type of aircraft without wings capable of vertical takeoff
and landing.
Helicopter
Topic 1: 20
This vehicle creates lift without an airfoil.
Hot Air Balloon
Topic 1: 25
This type of aircraft does not carry passengers or has a pilot
onboard.
UAV
Topic 2: 5
This instrument is used to determine a plane’s height above
ground.
Altimeter
Topic 2: 10
This device allows a pilot to communicate with air traffic control
and other aircraft.
Radio
Topic 2: 15
This instrument shows a plane’s relationship to the horizon.
Attitude Indicator
Topic 2: 20
This instrument always points to magnetic north and aids in
navigation.
Compass
Topic 2: 25
This instrument shows how fast the engine is running.
Tachometer
Topic 3: 5
This control surface on an aircraft moves up and down to control
pitch.
Elevator
Topic 3: 10
These parts of a wing deflect to control roll.
Ailerons
Topic 3: 15
Located at the front of some aircraft, this twisted airfoil spins to
produce thrust.
Propeller
Topic 3: 20
This part of the wing extends to change an aircraft’s lift and drag.
Flaps
Topic 3: 25
This control surface moves side to side to yaw the aircraft.
Rudder
Topic 4: 5
This force acts opposite of thrust.
Drag
Topic 4: 10
This number is used to describe the ratio of an aircraft’s speed to
the speed of sound.
Mach Number
Topic 4: 15
This is the aircraft’s motion about its y-axis.
Pitch
Topic 4: 20
This condition occurs when an aircraft’s angle of attack is high
enough to cause flow separation.
Stall
Topic 4: 25
This is the speed that the aircraft senses.
Airspeed
Topic 5: 5
This long stretch of pavement (also called tarmac) is used to take
off and land.
Runway
Topic 5: 10
This location is the communications hub of the airport.
Control Tower
Topic 5: 15
The airplanes are kept in this large building when not in use.
Hanger
Topic 5: 20
Passengers wait for the flight in this building (or buildings).
Terminal
Topic 5: 25
Aircraft use these to move from the terminal to the runway.
Taxiway
