5 Basic Types of Aircraft Engines That Most of You Don't Know
5 Basic Types of Aircraft Engines That Most of You Don't Know Engines are the power generating component of an aircraft. There are different types of aircraft engines are used in different aircraft to meet different types of operational condition. A reciprocating engine, Turboprop engine, Turboshaft engine, Turbojet, and Turbofan engines are commonly used engines in modern aircraft. Apart from these non-air breathing...
9 Basic Types of Aircraft Wings Most of You Don’t Know
9 Basic Types of Aircraft Wings That Most of You Don't Know The major component of an airplane is the center body called as fuselage, The wings, Vertical and Horizontal tails, etc, In these wings are lift generating component of the aircraft. Airplane deals with four forces, the upward force call lift, the downward force called weight and forward force thrust and...
6 Basic Types of Aircraft Propeller That Most of You Don't Know
Aircraft’s propellers are thrust generating components. It has something common with the wing, they both are made up of airfoil sections. The airfoil shape is important in generating aerodynamic forces such as lift and thrust. Types of propellers are classified on the basis of its pitch. If we consider a perpendicular axis from the center of the propeller the root...
4 Major Types of Aircraft in the World
Types of aircraft can be classified on the basis of size, Method of lift, Propulsion, etc. The following paragraphs are discussing the classification based on the method of lift. In that classification, the size propulsion method and many other factors will be discussed. Aerostats and aerodynes are two types of aircraft classified on the basis of the method of lift. Aerostats are...
