Topic 1: 5

This aircraft can fly faster than the speed of


sound, and does not have a propeller.

Jet
Topic 1: 10
This aircraft has a large wingspan but no engine.

Glider
Topic 1: 15

This is type of aircraft without wings capable of vertical takeoff


and landing.

Helicopter
Topic 1: 20

This vehicle creates lift without an airfoil.

Hot Air Balloon


Topic 1: 25

This type of aircraft does not carry passengers or has a pilot


onboard.

UAV
Topic 2: 5

This instrument is used to determine a planes height above


ground.

Altimeter
Topic 2: 10

This device allows a pilot to communicate with air traffic control


and other aircraft.

Radio
Topic 2: 15

This instrument shows a planes relationship to the horizon.

Attitude Indicator
Topic 2: 20

This instrument always points to magnetic north and aids in


navigation.

Compass
Topic 2: 25

This instrument shows how fast the engine is running.

Tachometer
Topic 3: 5
This control surface on an aircraft moves up and down to control
pitch.

Elevator
Topic 3: 10

These parts of a wing deflect to control roll.

Ailerons
Topic 3: 15

Located at the front of some aircraft, this twisted airfoil spins to


produce thrust.
Propeller
Topic 3: 20
This part of the wing extends to change an aircrafts lift and drag.

Flaps
Topic 3: 25

This control surface moves side to side to yaw the aircraft.

Rudder
Topic 4: 5

This force acts opposite of thrust.

Drag
Topic 4: 10

This number is used to describe the ratio of an aircrafts speed to


the speed of sound.

Mach Number
Topic 4: 15

This is the aircrafts motion about its y-axis.

Pitch
Topic 4: 20

This condition occurs when an aircrafts angle of attack is high


enough to cause flow separation.

Stall
Topic 4: 25

This is the speed that the aircraft senses.

Airspeed
Topic 5: 5

This long stretch of pavement (also called tarmac) is used to take


off and land.

Runway
Topic 5: 10

This location is the communications hub of the airport.

Control Tower
Topic 5: 15

The airplanes are kept in this large building when not in use.

Hanger
Topic 5: 20

Passengers wait for the flight in this building (or buildings).

Terminal
Topic 5: 25

Aircraft use these to move from the terminal to the runway.

Taxiway
