 Principles of Flight Poster 24x36 Physics & Plane Parts
by Feenix Publishing
 
      This poster provides a comprehensive overview of the title subject. It begins by graphically explaining the physics of the all-important airfoil. A large picture of an airplane is used to identify all of its major parts. This is followed by the exploration of the aircraft control system; how the ailerons, rudder and elevator are used to control climb and descent, yaw, and roll. It is accompanied by a section that discusses an airplanes center of gravity, its importance, and how to control it. All of this covers the basic principles of flight, but we dont stop there. Whereas the top half of the poster focuses on theory, the bottom half concentrates on practice.
   The six traditional mechanical flight instruments are explained. The flight deck, which contains these instruments plus a great many other things, is then explored. Traditional flight instruments are now being replaced by electronic multi-function "glass panels", which are introduced.
   The finale is an introduction to actual flying. It begins with a detailed description of takeoff procedure, followed by a section on how to turn, bank, climb and descend. Of course, it ends with how to land the airplane.
   Certainly a poster is no substitute for formal flight training, but Principles of Flight provides an outstanding introduction to flying.
   All posters are printed on very heavy, high-quality paper. It is also a very hard paper that preserves tiny details. Posters are then specially coated to provide a satin finish that reduces glare and enhances their presentation. These are the same high standards used to produce expensive art prints. Artists are selected on the basis of their illustration skills and their knowledge of the subject. Many have both art and science degrees. This ensures an accurate presentation of the subject.
   
All posters measure 24" x 36". This standard size fits inexpensive, off the shelf frames if you wish to frame this poster.
