Modern airplanes are truly engineering marvels. They overcome highly turbulent and unpredictable currents in the air and complete their flights by undertaking many complex maneuvers. Have you ever thought of how the pilots are able to achieve this, or what happens to the airplane when the pilot operates certain controls? In this video, we will explore how an airplane flies, and how pilots are able to control an airplane in a logical, yet simple way.

How Exactly Do Airplanes Fly?

Human’s capability of flight comes down to four main forces: lift, gravity, thrust and drag. But how do these forces work together (or against each other) to make human flight possible?

What Is Drag?:

“Drag is the aerodynamic force that opposes an aircraft's motion through the air. Drag is generated by every part of the airplane (even the engines!). How is drag generated?

Bernoulli’s Principle:

“Bernoulli's principle, sometimes known as Bernoulli's equation, holds that for fluids in an ideal state, pressure and density are inversely related: in other words, a slow-moving fluid exerts more pressure than a fast-moving fluid.

Wings And Lift:

“For a plane or bird to fly, its wings must produce enough lift to equal its weight. Most wings used in flight are a special shape – called aerofoils (or airfoils).

How Do Airplanes Work? | Educational Video for Kids by Brain Candy TV

*This is a re-release of the original video after fixing a spelling mistake (oops, sorry about that).

Let's join Captain Lizzy on a fun learning adventure where we'll learn about the different parts of an airplane and how they work together to make it fly up in the sky!

First we'll learn about the main parts of an airplane as we assemble a big jet airliner, then Captain Lizzy will show us around the flight deck before learning the basic physics and engineering behind how the engines and wings work. Then Lizzy will take us for a ride in the mighty 747 and we'll learn how the different parts of the wings work to control the airplane in flight.

This video will be kicking off what I hope will be many more videos in the STEM fields. As our original Brainiacs outgrow our preschool topics, we hope to continue their education and inspire a lasting wonder of the natural world, science and technology.

My goal with this channel is to jump-start your child’s education so they can grow up to be more confident and successful in school, and in life. Recent studies have shown that learning between birth and 3 years old is crucial to your child’s cognitive and emotional development, so let’s make the most of their screen time by giving them the head start they deserve!

If you or your children enjoyed this video, please let me know in the comments below. And if you have a request for any special type of vehicle or topic that your kids would love to see, drop me a line and maybe I'll be able to incorporate it in an upcoming video!

How Massive Airplanes Take Off And Stay In Midair

The Wright brothers successfully flew their first flying machine in 1903. Since then, technology has come a long way. This video explains how huge airplanes that weigh over 1 million pounds are able to fly in mid-air without falling.

How do Airplanes fly ? Animation

Airplane wings are shaped to make air move faster over the top of the wing. When air moves faster, the pressure of the air decreases. So the pressure on the top of the wing is less than the pressure on the bottom of the wing. The difference in pressure creates a force on the wing that lifts the wing up into the air. The ability of airplanes to fly under cold temperatures is generally a baffling idea. But how can planes fly upside down then? aerodynamics ....

How do Wings generate LIFT ?

Dear friends, please help us to make LE's efforts sustainable. Please support us at

Have you ever thought how wings of an aircraft work ? How do they produce incredible amount of lift ? Airfoil technology helped human beings to fly. Airplane wing works due to the interesting fluid mechanics behind the airfoils. Wind Turbines, gas turbines and hydraulic machines, all work on the principles of airfoil. This video will unveil the physics behind the simple shape that revolutionized the engineering world.

Working of airfoil is explained here with help of Coanda effect and flow curvature principle. The drawback of argument based on Bernoulli's prinicple demonstrated here both experimentally and theoretically.

Contrary to popular belief, airplanes do not fly because of Bernoulli's Principle. It's actually much simpler than that.

How Do Planes Fly? | Best Learning Videos For Kids | Thinking Captain

For an object that can weigh up to 500 tons, how can a giant piece of metal fly and stay up in the sky? For a plane to stay in flight it needs four forces to work together: thrust, lift, weight (or gravity), and drag.

How do Airplanes Fly?

Ever wonder How an Airplane flies and can travel up to 13000Kms without stopping? This Whiteboard Animation video gives you an overview you'll definitely love.

The video tell you about 'The Aerodynamics of an Airplane' , 'Parts of an Airplane' & 'Controlling the Airplane'.

0:46 The Aerodynamic s of an Airplane. the Four aerodynamics of an Airplane are Drag, Thrust, Weight and Lift.

1:43 Jump to the Working on an Engine and How Thrust is Generated.

2:48 Part of an Airplane.
In this Section: I've explained about Wing, Stabilizers.
Airplane wings are shaped to make air move faster over the top of the wing. When air moves faster, the pressure of the air decreases. So the pressure on the top of the wing is less than the pressure on the bottom of the wing. The difference in pressure creates a force on the wing that lifts the wing up into the air.

3:35 Stabilizer. (Horizontal and Vertical Stabilizer)
Horizontal Stabilizer controls the Pitch
Vertical Stabilizer controls the Yaw

4:01 In Controlling the Airplane Section I've explained, how to control Yaw, Pitch and rolling motion by Elevator, Rudder and Ailerons.

4:14 Elevator (to control Pitch)
4:37 Ruder (to control Yaw)
5:00 Aileron: (to control the Rolling Motion of an Airplane.
I hope after watching this video, how does an Airplane fly won't be a Rocket Science anymore.

What Airplane Turbulence Is And Why It's No Big Deal

Airplane turbulence may seem like the end of the road but statistically, there is no data of a plane crash caused by turbulence. Here is why turbulence is caused and why it should stop you from booking your next flight.


Following is the transcript of the video:

Why turbulence is no big deal. It can feel like the scariest part of flying, but turbulence is no cause for alarm. 

Turbulence is a sudden change in airflow. It can be caused by a number of factors. The most common cause is turbulent air in the atmosphere. 

Jet streams trigger sudden changes in wind speed that can rock the plane. Another type is thermal turbulence. It's created by hot rising air, usually from cumulus clouds or thunderstorms. Mechanical turbulence is caused by the landscape. Mountains or tall buildings can distort the wind flow in the sky above them. 

Airplanes can also create turbulence. The wings cause wake turbulence as it passes through the air. This can affect planes flying behind one another. It's why planes avoid taking the same flight path on take offs and landings. Pilots and air traffic control do a lot to avoid turbulence.

But even when they do run into it, the risk is low. Modern aircraft are built to withstand even severe turbulence. They can quickly rise and fall up to 100 feet. As a result, turbulence hasn't caused a plane crash in over 40 years. 

Unfortunately, it has been on the rise. Since 1958, turbulence rose 40-90% over Europe and North America. Studies suggest global warming could cause it to be worse by 2050. 

When booking seats, aim for ones closest to the wings. These will be the smoothest in turbulence. For now, trust your pilot, be smart and buckle up.

How Wings ACTUALLY Create Lift!

This video looks at how wings produce lift to allow an aircraft to fly. Wings, also called Aerofoils or Airfoils produce lift by turning the air as it passes over the surfaces of the wing. Common incorrect explanations which are given include the Equal Transit or Longer Path theory based on the Bernoulli Principle.
