Bank - A cluster of arrivals or departures in a short period of time, characteristic of an airline hub operation.

Bank angle.
The angle between the horizontal plnase and the right wing in the lateral plane, positive when the right wing is down; Synonyms: roll; Symbols: phi,Phi; Typical Units: rad, deg; ...

Steep Bank: Banks that charge pilots more than 10% interest.
Tail Wind: Results from eating beans, often causing Oxygen deficiency in the immediate vicinity.
Turn & Bank Indicator: An instrument highly ignored by pilots.

~ - The folks who hold the lien on a pilot's car.
CARBURETOR ICING - A phenomenon reported to by pilots that occurs immediately after they run out of gas.
CONE OF CONFUSION - An area about the size of New Jersey located near the final approach NDB at an airport.

~: The folks who hold the lien on most pilots' cars.
Barrel Roll: Sport enjoyed at squadron picnics, usually after the barrels are empty.
Carburetor Icing: A phenomenon happening to Aero club pilots at exactly the same time they run out of gas.

~ is compared with the AI (vacuum), TC (electric). Turn is compared by adding HI to the Compare the pitch information of the AI (vacuum) and the VSI (static). The AI and the VSI can fail independently as can the airspeed (ice) or power.

~ angle (i.e. the angle between wings and horizon)
slip angle (as indicated by the slip string)

Each ~ has its own criteria for aircraft age and loan amount. Most lenders have a $25,000 minimum, but Allied First ~ in Oswego, Ill., will consider under-$25,000 airplanes; Randy Aarestad, President of Red River State ~ in Halstad, Minn.

The Export-Import ~ of the United States is the North American export credit agency. EX-IM ~ supports a wide variety of industries but is closely associated with Boeing, supporting the US aircraft manufactuer's sales of aircraft to overseas airlines and lessors.

The fog ~ will probably roll in for the first time the instant you crawl into the cockpit and are expected to do something intelligent. The environment is strange and at first the panel will look wildly exotic and indecipherable.

Roll (~) - in which one wing of the airplane moves up while the other moves down in the aircraft's frame of reference. This is typically controlled by ailerons on the wings of the airplane.
Coordinated flight requires the pilot to use roll control and yaw control simultaneously.

The Turn and ~ Indicator. Sometimes referred to as the "needle and ball" for a more traditional instrument that replaces the "little airplane" with a needle, and the "vertical line" with a ball.
The airspeed indicator. Hey, you have to know how fast, or slow, your airplane is going.
The altimeter.

The simulator ~ towers over me as I sit down; less, I will soon learn, than any of the sims I will use on future course, but for now: shit.

Φ = the ~ angle
r = yaw rate which is approximately equal tot be rate of turn
V = flight velocity ...

Ailerons: Wing control surfaces for aircraft's ~ and roll.
Airacobra: Bell P-39 Fighter Aircraft
Air Strip: Aircraft landing field.
Air Support: Tactical Air Cooperation mission with ground troops.

AJRS: Air Jungle Rescue Squadron ...

The speed (or rate) at which your airplane rolls into a ~ depends on the rate and amount of control pressure you apply.
The amount of ~ depends on how long you keep the ailerons deflected.

As a verb, this means to roll the aircraft at a high rate of roll to a near 90 ~, and pulling a hard turn, like "break right" or "break left".
2. "The Break": The traditional VFR (visual) flight approach to a Navy field, now surviving mainly on the carriers and at airshows.

Input some right cyclic to start a ~ to the right
Judge the acceleration to the right
When the helicopter has accelerated to the correct speed to the right, center the cyclic.
As the helicopter approaches the desired position, move the cyclic to the left.
Judge the decelleration.

Aircraft controls where the pilot's commands (~, yaw.) are transmitted to control surfaces electronically or via fiber optics, instead of mechanical linkage. Also called FBL (Fly-By-Light).
FDR: Flight Data Recorder. One of the so-called "black boxes".

I can use both the visual and artificial horizons for determining my degree of ~. The altimeter gives me a sensitive indication of whether I'm flying level or losing or gaining altitude; a notch of power either way will correct such situations.

If you are traveling at a faster speed then you are going to need a steeper ~ in order to accomplish the 3-degree per second requirement. To accomplish a standard rate turn pilots use either a turn coordinator or a turn and ~ indicator.

The same pilot was also once reprimanded, "Never exceed 30 degrees of ~ in the pattern" without any further explanation. Stress-induced tunnel vision effectively blocks any thought of a go-around.

On the airdrome your chief anxiety is to learn how to fly, how to work the controls, how to ~; but in cross-country work, you are supposed to have all the technique of, airplane operation well in hand, so that you do not have to think much about it.

At low speed and high load factors, say a 75 degree ~ and a speed just over 2.5 times the stall speed, the aerodynamic load is inclined some 20 to 30 degrees forward. Will this wing which may even have been "sand bag tested" in the "normal" load condition stand it?

So, don't try to fly through a cloud ~ or "scud-run" in low visibility conditions if you aren't a current, instrument-rated pilot. For the unqualified pilot, the sudden loss of visual reference is similar to a sudden loss of eyesight.

Used to ~ the aircraft. They work in opposite directions (when one goes up, the other goes down.) One aileron raising forces air to push that side of the wing down, causing the model to roll in that direction. So, to roll right the right aileron raises.

The result shows that an airplane with unaccelerated stall speed of 55kts will actually stall at 77kst at a 60 degrees ~.
The graph to the right is regularly used to determine the increase in stalling speed (in percent) in a given angle of ~.

Leaving maximum room to turn also means that less ~ angle is required and therefore less wing loading and lower stall speed (which increases with ~ angle).
Airspeed ...

SLIP - Too steep a ~ in a turn, causing an aircraft to slide inward from its ideal turing path.
SLOT - A long, narrow, spanwise gap in a wing, usually near the leading edge, to improve airflow at high angles of attack for slower landing speeds.

Stall - Technique used to explain to the ~ why your car payment is late because you spent the money on flying.

Stewardess - A pretty gal who asks you what you want, then straps you in so can't get it.

s ~, and later the father-in-law of Charles Lindbergh, was named chairman. The board heard testimony from 99 people, and on November 30, 1925, submitted its report to President Coolidge.

Direct indication. The true and instantaneous reflection of aircraft pitch-and-~ attitude by the miniature aircraft, relative to the horizon bar of the attitude indicator.

Skidding turn. An uncoordinated turn in which the rate of turn is too great for the angle of ~, pulling the aircraft to the outside of the turn.
Skin friction drag. Drag generated between air molecules and the solid surface of the aircraft.

Aileron: Control surfaces on (usually) outer sections of wing trailing edges, controlling ~ and roll of aircraft.
Airspeed Indicator (ASI): Instrument measuring speed of aircraft through air, usually expressed in knots.

Prospective pilots should also look into AOPA's Flight Training Funds program, according to Aviation Technical Specialist Craig Brown. Offered through ~ of America, it provides up to $25,000 in loan funds for training via FAR part 61 or 141 programs or through an accredited college program.

of the left aileron increases the wing camber (curvature) and thus increases the angle of attack. The right aileron moves upward and decreases the camber, resulting in a decreased angle of attack. Thus, decreased lift on the right wing and increased lift on the left wing cause a roll and ~ to the ...

heading at a hover or during takeoff or approach, the pilot must use antitorque pedals to apply just enough pitch on the tail rotor to neutralize torque and hold a slip if necessary. Heading control in forward trimmed flight is normally accomplished with cyclic control, using a coordinated ~ and ...
