Slide 2

I Want to Be a Pilot   I need to be a pilot when I grow up on the grounds that it\'s fun and simple to do. Pilots needn\'t bother with much school , they simply need to learn numbers so they can read the instruments. I figure they ought to have the capacity to peruse maps so they can discover their direction on the off chance that they get lost. Pilots ought to be overcome so they won\'t get scarred on the off chance that it\'s foggy and they can\'t see or if a wing or engine tumbles off they ought to stay quiet so they\'ll realize what to do. Pilots need to have great eyes so they can see through mists and they can\'t fear lighting or thunder since they are nearer to them then we are. The compensation pilots make is something else that I like. They profit than they can spend. This is on account of a great many people think plane flying is unsafe with the exception of pilots don\'t on the grounds that they know how simple it is. There isn\'t much I don\'t care for, aside from young ladies like pilots and every one of the attendants need to wed them so they generally need to pursue them away so they won\'t trouble them. I trust I don\'t get nauseous in light of the fact that on the off chance that I do I couldn\'t be a pilot and would need to go to work. A Fifth Grader

Slide 20

YAW Rudder – The foot pedals are associated by method for wires or hydrodynamics to the rudder of the tail segment. The rudder is the vertical part of the tail that can move from side to side.

Slide 21

ROLL Ailerons – The stick is associated by method for wires or hydrodynamics to the wings\' ailerons. By turning the stick, the pilot can change the positions of the ailerons .

Slide 22

PITCH Elevators – The stick (delight stick) is associated by method for wires or hydrodynamics to the tail segment\'s lifts. By moving the stick, the pilot can change the position of the lifts.
