How Airplanes Fly (Video)
What makes an airplane get off the ground and stay aloft? This question and many more are answered in this easy-to-understand film which combines animation and live sequences to explain basic aerodynamics for general aviation pilots and high school science students alike. Forces of lift, weight, thrust and drag are shown in relation to flight. 16 minutes, 1969, FA-703
I also have a digital high resolution version of this film that is available on DVD. Please visit my pilot shop page for more information. By the way, the DVD version of this film is available for only $8.95 and at one point the FAA was charging folks $61.75 for this film!
