Topic 1: 10
This aircraft has a large wingspan but no engine.
Topic 1: 15
This is type of aircraft without wings capable of vertical takeoff
Topic 1: 20
This vehicle creates lift without an airfoil.
Hot Air Balloon
Topic 1: 25
This type of aircraft does not carry passengers or has a pilot
Topic 2: 5
This instrument is used to determine a plane’s height above
Topic 2: 10
This device allows a pilot to communicate with air traffic control
and other aircraft.
Topic 2: 15
This instrument shows a plane’s relationship to the horizon.
Topic 2: 20

Topic 2: 25
This instrument shows how fast the engine is running.
Topic 3: 5
This control surface on an aircraft moves up and down to control
Topic 3: 10
These parts of a wing deflect to control roll.
Topic 3: 15
Located at the front of some aircraft, this twisted airfoil spins to
Topic 3: 20
This part of the wing extends to change an aircraft’s lift and drag.
Topic 3: 25
This control surface moves side to side to yaw the aircraft.
Topic 4: 5
This force acts opposite of thrust.
Topic 4: 10
This number is used to describe the ratio of an aircraft’s speed to
the speed of sound.
Topic 4: 15
This is the aircraft’s motion about its y-axis.
Topic 4: 20
This condition occurs when an aircraft’s angle of attack is high
enough to cause flow separation.
Topic 4: 25
This is the speed that the aircraft senses.
Topic 5: 5
This long stretch of pavement (also called tarmac) is used to take
off and land.
Topic 5: 10
This location is the communications hub of the airport.
Topic 5: 15
The airplanes are kept in this large building when not in use.
Topic 5: 20
Passengers wait for the flight in this building (or buildings).
Topic 5: 25
Aircraft use these to move from the terminal to the runway.
