Lift and Stalls
Electronic classroom presentation with slides
Partially supported by this lesson topic:
Upon completion of this unit of instruction the student
naval aviator will demonstrate knowledge of basic
aerodynamic factors that affect airplane performance.
Completely supported by this lesson topic:
Define pitch attitude, flight path, relative wind,
angle of attack, mean camber line, positive camber
airfoil, negative camber airfoil, symmetric
airfoil, aerodynamic center, airfoil thickness, spanwise
flow, chordwise flow, aerodynamic force, lift, and drag.
pressure, and the aerodynamic force as air flows
around a cambered airfoil and a symmetric airfoil.
Describe the effects of changes in angle of attack on
the pressure distribution and aerodynamic force of
cambered and symmetric airfoils.
Describe the effects of changes in density, velocity,
surface area, camber, and angle of attack on lift.
List the factors affecting lift that the pilot can
Compare and contrast the coefficients of lift
generated by cambered and symmetric airfoils.
Describe the relationships between weight, lift,
velocity, and angle of attack in order to maintain
straight and level flight, using the lift equation.
Define boundary layer.
List and describe the types of boundary layer air
