So I’m watching my Sporty’s private pilot videos and they are talking about the four forces: lift, weight, thrust and drag. They go on to say this:
“In steady level flight the opposing forces are equal to and cancel the effects of each other out”
This can’t be right since the plane is moving forward thrust must be greater than drag.
That or I’m missing something….
Or was Newton wrong
Or my high school physics teacher lied.
