Aircraft Structure


Summary, Description

The numerous types of aeroplanes are studied in this course. Then it explores the power-driven structure – heavier than aeroplanes. Finally, the instructional manuals are tested on the board of the flight simulator.

What is the configuration of an aircraft?

Many aircraft designs have a fuselage, wings, an empennage, a power plant, and a landing gear.
An aircraft’s mechanical structure is known as the air-frame. The fuselage, undercarriage, empennage, and wings are usually assumed to contain this arrangement and exclude the propulsion system.

What are the 4 aircraft categories?

Classifications of Aircraft

Airplane: land or sea single-engine or land or sea multi-engine.

Helicopter or gyroplane rotorcraft.

Balloons or airships: Lighter-Than-Air.

Driven Parachutes: sea or ground.

Weight-Control-Shift-Land or Shore.

What are aeroplanes categorised?

Based on the number of wings, aeroplanes are categorised as monoplanes, biplanes and so on. Aircraft can also be defined as follows depending on the mode of takeoff and landing, Standard VTOL STOL STOVL etc.

Is it used in the construction of aircraft structures?

Titanium is also used in the design of aircraft structures as it is a lightweight, strong and corrosion resistant metal. This material is employed in the manufacture some of the engine components, together with specifically designed heat resistant alloys, such as Nickel-based superalloys
