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.

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.

Why Do Planes Fly So High?

We’ve all been flying high ever since the development of the jet engine in the mid-1950s. But why were jets were designed to fly at those high altitudes in the first place?

Boeing 737 Facts

10,000 737s stacked on top of one another would be approximately 406,000 feet or 77 miles (124 kilometers) high, and is equivalent to: 149 Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest building in the world, stacked on top of one another; 274 Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; 382 Eiffel Towers, Paris; [and] 280 Empire State Buildings, New York City.

Wing Design

Before a wing is designed, its mission has to be determined. What type of aircraft will this wing be attached to? Will it need to operate at high altitudes with thin atmospheres? Will it have to carry heavy loads? Will it need space to mount the engines? How much fuel will we want to store inside? How (Photo courtesy of Boeing) fast or agile will the aircraft need to be? The list of potential specifications is long and highly complex.

How Things Work: Winglets

Winglets reduce wingtip vortices, the twin tornados formed by the difference between the pressure on the upper surface of an airplane's wing and that on the lower surface. High pressure on the lower surface creates a natural airflow that makes its way to the wingtip and curls upward around it. When flow around the wingtips streams out behind the airplane, a vortex is formed. These twisters represent an energy loss and are strong enough to flip airplanes that blunder into them.

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 fly? Components - Coandă effect - Downwash - 3D animation

WE MADE A NEW VERSION OF THIS VIDEO, PLEASE CHECK IT OUT:


You can visit our online catalog to find all the major aircraft manufacturers:

That Feeling by HookSounds Creative Commons — Attribution 4.0 International — CC BY 4.0 Music promoted by Audio Library

An airliner is typically defined as an aircraft intended for carrying multiple passengers or cargo in commercial service. When the Wright brothers made the world’s first sustained heavier-than-air flight, they laid the foundation for what would become a major transport industry.

Listing every single component of an airplane is almost impossible. The modern airliners in fact are composed of huge variety of mechanical, hydraulic and electronic components.
JAES, besides being a qualified partner for some of the most important aircraft manufacturers, is constantly engaged in the supply of all those spare parts necessary for the production, assembly, repair and maintenance of aircraft. Such as:
But have you ever wondered how such a large object, made up of all these components, can lift off the ground and fly hundreds of people at an altitude of thousands of feet?
In this video we will explain how an airplane flies and how the pilots are able to control it, in a simple but very specific way. First, let's take a closer look at the wing of the plane. We notice that it is not composed of a single solid piece. The wings, as well as the tails of airplanes, have many moving elements.
The most curious thing about the wing is its own specific shape, that follow the basic principles of fluid mechanics.
In this section we are able to see the shape of the wing.
We notice that the wing has a teardrop shape and when the airplane starts moving in this direction, the airflow will hit the wing following these trajectories.
But how does the wing rise when it is hit by the air flow?
First of all, it is necessary to say that the wing is placed in a slightly inclined position to improve the air flow.
In addition, the air flow entering at point A should have the same speed as the air flow at point B. In this situation we are led to believe that the upper air flow is faster because it has to travel more airfoil surface than the lower air flow.
Actually, speed has nothing to do with this situation, in fact, the upper air flow is simply more rarefied, which means that its molecules are more distant from each other while they travel across the wing surface.
The lower air flow, on the other hand, is less rarefied and therefore its molecules are closer to each other.
The lower air flow has more molecules than the upper air flow. This creates a difference in pressure between the two parts. The low pressure on the top creates an upward suction effect that allows the wing, and consequently the whole aircraft, to lift up.
In addition, the numerous molecules of the lower air flow create an high pressure effect, that allows the upward lifting of the wing.
But this is not the only reason why planes fly. In addition to this pressure difference, the COANDĂ EFFECT comes into play, which is is the tendency of a fluid jet to stay attached to a nearby surface.
This effect can clearly be shown by placing a simple spoon under running water.
Or a common glass jar.
The fluid, or in this case the air flow, moving along the wing surface causes friction, which tends to slow it down. This slowing only affects the molecules in direct contact with the wing.
The air flow coming in a straight line, hit the wing and follows its shape all the way out.
This contributes to lifting the plane.
So, the greater the air flow investing the wing, the greater the upward thrust. This is why planes to take off must reach high ground speed.
An idea to increase the effect of this upward thrust is to change the shape of the wings by adding some moving elements such as SLATS and FLAPS, which by opening up they increase the deflection as well as the wing surface.
When SLATS and FLAPS are activated by the pilot there is a substantial increase in the vertical speed, also known as DOWNWASH, this allows to increase the thrust.
These ailerons instead can move up and down and for this reason the lift force can decrease or increase respectively.
At the tail of the plane you can see two main elements: the RUDDER that moving to the right and left allows control of the horizontal force and the ELEVATORS that moving up and down allow control of the vertical force generated on the tail.
Thanks to these moving parts, it is possible to control the direction of the aircraft, from the take-off to the landing phase...

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 ....

But how does the wing rise when it is hit by the air flow?
First of all, it is necessary to say that the wing is placed in a slightly inclined position to improve the air flow. In this way, the angle of attack, which is the angle formed between the chord line of the wing and the air flow direction, is increased.
We can notice now that the air flow entering at point A should have the same speed as the air flow at point B. In this situation we are led to believe that the upper air flow is faster because it has to travel more airfoil surface than the lower air flow. This difference in speed causes a difference in pressure between the two air flows. In the upper air flow in fact there will be lower pressure, while in the lower air flow there will be higher pressure.
This phenomenon is in accordance with Bernoulli principle. It is a common idea in fact to relate the Bernoulli’s equation to this situation. The Bernoulli principle states that an increase in the speed of a fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in pressure or a decrease in the fluid's potential energy.
This principle is absolutely right, the problem is not this specific physical law, but it’s the application of this law to this phenomenon. To say that the speed difference between the two air flows is caused by the fact that the upper air flow has to travel more airfoil surface to be reunited with the lower air flow at the end of the wing is just wrong. So the fact that the upper air flow is faster than the lower one is true, but based on a completely wrong conclusion. The upper air flow is not interested in rejoining the lower air flow at the exit of the airfoil. So, the difference in pressure phenomenon is explained by a completely false fact...

25 Reasons Why Fear Of Flying Is Plane Silly

We’ve all heard it said that traveling by air is safe. Statistics more than back up this claim. However, there are still some people out there who are absolutely terrified of flying. So terrified in fact, that some people go through some major anxiety attacks just thinking of the possibility of hoping on a plane. Are you one of these people and are you about to go on a trip somewhere? Then you’ve come to the right place. Although we won’t claim to be able to rid you of your flight anxiety, we just might be able to reduce it a bit. These are 25 Reasons Why Fear Of Flying Is Plane Silly (see what we did there, fear of flying…plane silly).

See, flying is not so scary when you are aware of these facts and statistics:

First of all, there are more than 10,000 planes in the air right now

There are about 100,000 passenger flights scheduled every single day

That's not even counting military, cargo, air taxis, and general aviation

According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, in the United States alone 1.73 million people boarded flights every single day in 2010

Actually, flying is by far the safest form of travel

You are 22 times more likely to be in an accident on the way to the airport in your car than you are during your flight

Actually, if you do die on an airplane, it's more likely that you'll die of a heart attack or even choking on your food than falling out of the sky

To be honest, even walking is more dangerous. According to the National Safety Council walking is one of the most dangerous modes of transport in terms of fatal accidents

Going back to driving and car accidents, how often do you inspect your car? If ever?

Well, planes are inspected constantly. After every single flight.

Turbulence is actually not dangerous. Planes are no more likely to fall from the sky during heavy turbulence than in otherwise normal conditions

And lightning strikes? Most airliners get hit on average every couple years but you wouldn't even know it.

Actually, you're more likely to die getting hit by lightning on your way to get into your car to go to the airport

To really blow your mind, you have a greater chance of dying by falling out of your bed

Ok, let's put it this way, every year hippos kill more people than planes do

In 2013 three billion people flew on airplanes. That's half the world's population.

There were only 210 fatalities

As humans, we tend to remember the catastrophes and forget everything else, so our memories are very biased

Consider that most accidents happen during takeoff and landing. And the vast majority of those accidents are anything but fatal.

Furthermore, consider that planes are lining up in front of you and behind you to takeoff

The runway you are on has most likely seen constant use since its construction without a single accident

Your pilot and copilot and entire flight staff have flown most of their careers and will continue flying for the rest of their careers

The reason that these statistics will not make you feel any better is because your brain will release stress hormones as soon as you feel that little bit of turbulence

And you will quickly forget these statistics. But you know what? We'll try one more anyway. You probably think that when you get in a car crash you have a good chance of surviving but as soon as the plane starts going down you're doomed right? Wrong.

Even if you do somehow manage to get in a plane crash (you won't), you will almost certainly survive. Between 1993 and 2000 there were 568 plane crashes in the US involving 53,487 people. 51,207 survived. Actually, even on the worst 26 crashes, more than half of the passengers survived. See? We told you that your fear was just plane silly.
