For this assignment, you will conduct research and compare the performance capabilities of aircraft based on design. You will write a 2-3 page paper, not including the title page and reference page, comparing the performance capabilities of two differently-designed aircraft. You may choose any two aircraft that you wish.  Remember to provide the appropriate performance data for your selected aircraft. In your discussion, include how aircraft design results in similarities and differences between the aircraft, and the performance limitations of your aircraft. 

Your paper must be supported by a minimum of three scholarly references, should be grammatically sound, and free of spelling errors.  You must include a properly formatted title page, in-text citations where appropriate, and a reference page formatted according to current APA guidelines. If you have any questions regarding APA requirements, please refer to the current APA manual or ask your instructor.

!! Guidelines !!

  • Content: must be from PHAK Chapters 4, 5, 11 and your other topic paper references.
  • References: Use only the topic template references.
  • Do NOT write about any other topics. 
  • I am looking for you to connect the essential (basic) theories or principles of PHAK 4. 5, and 11 to the airfoils (wings) for your two aircraft. I am not asking for an aeronautical engineering evaluation. Simply, apply the essential basic theories or principles of PHAK 4, and 5 to your two airfoils.
  • Write with the intent to demonstrate that you understand basic aerodynamic principles. 
  • Do not assume I understand terms or definitions. Define all terms. I want to know that you understand what you have researched. So, explain yourself. Write as if you are writing to a fourth grader. 

Plagiarism

EVERY sentence in your paper must have

  • either a narrative source citation in the sentence text
  • or a parenthetical source citation at the end of the sentence before the period.
  • You must cite each of the six required references at least once somewhere in the paper.
  • Review the APA-7 Announcement

Writing Assignment 2-4 Guidance

General

This paper evaluates your understanding and application of the elementary aerodynamic

concepts in the Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge (PHAK) Chapters 4, 5, and

11 in the Module 2 Readings and Resources. You will discuss topics in PHAK chapters 4,

5, 11 and relate them to the wing and flight control designs of your two selected airplanes.

• You will not discuss armament, roles, missions, cargo, fuel, passengers, or other non-aerodynamic topics that are not in PHAK chapters 4, 5, 11.

• You will not discuss flight controls as a system; but, you are expected to discuss them in the context of how they apply to the motions and axes of flight.

Straight wing airplane discussion

Describe and discuss topics such as these by referencing PHAK 4, 5, and your aeronautical

science mindset is sufficient detail to demonstrate mastery of the Module 2 material.

Describe how these concepts relate to the straight wings.

• The principle of lift and Bernoulli’s law

• Forces of flight including discussions of each force.

• Axes and motions of flight and how the motions are controlled.

Swept wing airplane discussion

Focus on swept differences from the straight wing.

Explain the aerodynamic reason that the wings are swept including a relative wind analysis.

Describe any other differences you see and their aerodynamic purpose(s).

Terms

Use (spell out) proper terms for all terms you use and define each term you use to

demonstrate topic understanding and mastery.

• Angle of attack

• Critical angle of attack

• Relative wind

• Angle of incidence

• Chord

• Camber

• Wingspan

• Bernoulli effect

• Lift, weight, thrust, drag

• Axes of flight and how they are controlled and the named of movement around eachfile:///G:/ERAU-W/[email protected]
