SJVA Aviation Institute – Day 2

Today, students learned how Bernoulli’s Principle and Newton’s Third Law of Motion causes a wing to create lift. In addition, students learned how an airplane can turn potential energy into kinetic energy and visa versa. This was demonstrated through the use of X-Plane flight simulator and the Fly to Learn curriculum. Furthermore, students spent time flying simulators, building foam balsa/foam gliders, and our RC J-3 Cub. Today, we almost finished the vertical stabilizer, rudder, horizontal stabilizer, and elevator.
