|What forces act on your plane?|
Firstly, this engine thrust. You can manage it. In
any aircraft simulator can increase thrust (THRUST).
Second - the force of air resistance. The higher the speed,
so this power later. Yet it depends on the cross-sectional area
of your aircraft. Manage it you cannot, but it can
used, for example in order to quickly extinguish the rate of
horizontal flight. Note that this force is quite
not necessarily opposed to attractive force. There is a certain 'angle
attack "between the direction of thrust and direction of the incident
flow. Typically, this is an acute angle, while those who saw Pugachev’s
Cobra "(when the jet is flying tail first), should
understand that this angle may be obtuse.
Next force - the force of gravity. You manage it in a reasonable
limits cannot (except dropping the cargo and disrupting military mission)
but use can and should. Because of it you can
"Trade off" clearance at stock speeds - in that the basis of many
The last force, without which it will not fly any aircraft -
lift. You can manage it and, moreover, is very effective.
Lifting force is formed due to two effects. Firstly -
due to the angle of attack. Since the incoming air flow falls to
plane is the plane at an angle (angle of attack), then there
vertical component, "pushing" the plane up. This
is a major component in modern jet aircraft. But
there is another component of the lift force. Profile of an airplane wing
made in such a way that the one air stream which flows over the wing
above, has a few more speed than the thread that
wraps around the wing from below. Of course in physics you can remember the law Bernoulli, the higher the rate of flow, the lower the pressure in it.
