Welcome to Basic Aerodynamics. Unlock the mysteries of flight with us! In this comprehensive introductory course, you’ll learn why and how lift develops, why a plane’s stall speed increases in a banked turn, and the differences between parasite drag, induced drag, maximum endurance and range speeds. We’ll also explore why excess power allows an airplane to climb and the relationship between airspeed and angle of attack. You’ll gain an understanding of the airplane’s V-g stress envelope as well as how maneuvering speed varies with weight. Finally, you’ll understand why a spin occurs – as well as how to recover from one. Ready to take your aerodynamic knowledge to new heights? Start your journey today with Basic Aerodynamics.
