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.

There are four forces acting on the airplane all the time during airplane is flying.The four forces are:Lift, Gravity force or Weight, Thrust, and Drag.Lift and Drag are considered aerodynamics forces because they exist due to the movement of the Airplane through the Air.

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.Airplanes fly because they are able to generate a force called Lift which normally moves the airplane upward.

Lift is generated by the forward motion of the airplane through the air. This motion is produced by the Thrust of the engine(s).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.
