CHAPTER TWO
THE FLIGHT CONTROLS
200.
INTRODUCTION
This chapter discusses the controls with which you will operate the aircraft about the three axes
of motion (Figure 2-1) and how to use them effectively. The controls are grouped into two
categories:
1.
Primary flight controls.
2.
Secondary flight controls.
201.
PRIMARY FLIGHT CONTROLS
To maneuver an aircraft, you will learn to control its movement about its lateral, longitudinal,
and vertical axes (Figure 2-1). This is accomplished by the use of the flight controls (elevators,
ailerons, and rudder), which can be deflected from their neutral position into the flow of air as the
aircraft moves forward. In flight, the controls have a natural live "feel" due to the force of the
airflow around them. With this in mind, the student should think of exerting force against this
live pressure or resistance not of moving the flight controls.
