Flying Through the Sky

A car zooming along a road can move in just two different ways. A car can drive to the left or right and it can move up and down a hill. A plane can also tilt and twirl. Pilots use hinged flaps to change the shape of the plane in the air. This changes the aerodynamics and moves the plane.

The pilot can tilt the plane’s nose up or down by tilting horizontal strips on the tail up or down.

Flaps on the wings tilt up and down to roll the plane.

A hinged rudder on the vertical tail makes the plane turn left or right.
