Today, students experimented with changing the angle of attack and adding flaps to the wing to see the affect it has on the wings ability to generate lift. Students first tested how much weight the wing could carry with a zero angle of attack and no flaps. They then repeated the process but each time increased the angle of attack and then with flaps. The students discovered that increasing the angle of attack and/or adding flaps increased the weight thus the lift threefold. This concludes SJVA’s Summer Aviation Institute but will resume in August once the school year starts.
