SJVA Aviation Institute – Day 9

Today, students learned that wing loading is the ratio of an airplanes gross weight divided by the surface area of the wing. The wing loading determines how much weight a square foot of the wing must lift. Over the next couple of days students will continue to do calculations, modify aircraft, and run simulations to better understand how changing the wing loading of an airplane impacts aircraft performance. SJVA_aviation-46 SJVA_aviation-47 SJVA_aviation-45 SJVA_aviation-48
