SJVA Aviation Institute – Day 5

Today, students learned about the affect drag (induced & parasitic) has on an airplane. They learned that the flaps on an airplane both increase the drag and lift allowing the airplane to fly at slower speeds which is critical for landing. In addition, students started flying our remote control airplane and continued to fly simulators and build our electric Piper Cub.
