I) What are the two primary classes of aircrafts:

1) Lighter-than air:

2) Heavier- than air:

Slide 4

1) Lighter-than air:

1) Lighter-than air:

Hydrogen was used (flammable gas).

Uses gas to keep it aloft

Eventually slighter heavier helium (non flammable) was used

Slide 5

II) Lighter-than air:

II) Lighter-than air:

1) Non-rigid: free balloon or hot air balloon, has no internal or external framework. Has no steering mechanism.

2) Rigid: blimp, gas is contained in a fabric covered wooden or metal frame work. A gondola (control car) is underneath which carries engines and personnel.

2) Heavier-than air:

All other types.

Slide 8

III) Heavier-than air:

III) Heavier-than air:

1) Rotary wing:

Lift is generated by moving blades overhead which act as revolving wings

A) Autogiro: non powered air driven blades. Forward flight is accomplished by use of a conventional engine and propeller. Forward motion caused free wheeling rotating blade.

Slide 9

Powered by rotating blades.

Powered by rotating blades.

blades may be tilted in any direction to control flight path.

B) Helicopter:

Slide 10

2) Fixed wing:

2) Fixed wing:

A) Seaplanes: (flying boats) uses floats or hulls in place of conventional landing gear to take off and land on water .

B) Landplanes: classified by location of wing, landing gear type etc
