Introduction to AeroSpace 05

OPENING QUESTION:  What features would you include in a fighter aircraft if you were designing it from scratch right now? (Be VERY general in your assessment)

LEARNING GOAL FOR TODAY:

WORDS O' THE DAY:

  • Thrust ("forward pushing force")
  • Air Friction ("resists forward motion")
  • Lift ("Lower pressure, upward pull")
  • Gravity ("downward pull")
