How do airplanes fly flight requires two things: thrust and lift find out how it all works.
Airplanes need four forces to fly lift is one of them image credit: nasa how do airplanes stay in the air four forces keep an airplane in the sky. Students begin to explore the idea of a force to further their understanding of drag, gravity and weight, they conduct activities that model the behavior of parachutes and helicopters.
A pilot of a plane has special controls that can be used to fly the plane there are levers and buttons that the pilot can push to change the yaw, pitch and roll of the plane to roll the plane to the right or left, the ailerons are raised on one wing and lowered on the other.
