Flashcards in Aircraft controls and Structure Deck (13):
1

What does the elevator alter

Aircraft pitch, which the attitude about the horizontal or lateral axis causing the nose to pitch up or down

FAA-8083-31 VOL 1 1-24

2

What does the rudder change

The aircraft rotates on the vertical axis(yaw)

FAA-8083-31 VOL 1 1-24

3

What does pulling or pushing the yoke forward or aft do

Changes the elevator causing nose pitch up or down

FAA-8083-31 VOL 1 1-27

4

What happens when the right pedal is pushed forward

Deflects the rudder to the right which moves the nose of the aircraft to the right along the yaw

FAA-8083-31 VOL 1 1-27

5

The stress that resists a force that tends to pull apart

Tension

FAA-8083-31 VOL 1 4-2

6

The stress that resists a crushing force, tends to shorten or squeeze aircraft parts

Compression

FAA-8083-31 VOL 1 4-2

7

The stress that resists the force tending to cause one layer of material to slide over an adjacent layer

Shear

FAA-8083-31 VOL 1 4-2

8

The stress that resists the force that the rivet or bolt places on the hole.

Bearing

FAA-8083-31 VOL 1 4-2

9

The stress that produces twisting

Torsion

FAA-8083-31 VOL 1 4-3

10

Is a combination of compression and tension

Bending

FAA-8083-31 VOL 1 4-4

11

What axis does the ailerons control

Longitudinal axis
roll

FAA-8083-31 VOL 1 1-24

12

What happens when moving the control column aft

Aft movement of the control column deflects the trailing edge of the elevator surface up. This is usually referred to as the up-elevator position. The up-elevator position decreases the camber of the elevator and creates a downward aerodynamic force, which is greater than the normal tail-down force that exists in straight-and- level flight. The overall effect causes the tail of the aircraft to move down and the nose to pitch up.

FAA 6-5

13

What happens when moving the control column forward

Moving the control column forward has the opposite effect. In this case, elevator camber increases, creating more lift (less tail-down force) on the horizontal stabilizer/elevator. This moves the tail upward and pitches the nose down. Again, the pitching moment occurs about the CG.
