An aircraft is a machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the air.
The airframe of an aircraft is its mechanical structure.
In fluid dynamics, angle of attack (AOA, or \alpha (Greek letter alpha)) is the angle between a reference line on a body (often the chord line of an airfoil) and the vector representing the relative motion between the body and the fluid through which it is moving.
The Boeing AH-64 Apache is an American twin-turboshaft attack helicopter with a tailwheel-type landing gear arrangement and a tandem cockpit for a two-man crew.
Bush flying refers to aircraft operations carried out in the bush.
A caster (also castor according to some dictionaries) is a wheeled device typically mounted to a larger object that enables relatively easy rolling movement of the object.
The center of gravity (CG) of an aircraft is the point over which the aircraft would balance.

The Douglas DC-3 is a fixed-wing propeller-driven airliner with tailwheel-type landing gear.
Elevators are flight control surfaces, usually at the rear of an aircraft, which control the aircraft's pitch, and therefore the angle of attack and the lift of the wing.
The Europa XS and Europa Classic are a family of British composite two-place low-wing monoplane kit aircraft.
A glider or sailplane is a type of glider aircraft used in the leisure activity and sport of gliding.
In aviation, a ground loop is a rapid rotation of a fixed-wing aircraft in the horizontal plane (yawing) while on the ground.
The Heinkel He 178 was the world's first aircraft to fly under turbojet power, and the first practical jet aircraft.
A jet aircraft (or simply jet) is an aircraft (nearly always a fixed-wing aircraft) propelled by jet engines (jet propulsion).
Jet blast is the phenomenon of rapid air movement produced by the jet engines of aircraft, particularly on or before takeoff.
Landing gear is the undercarriage of an aircraft or spacecraft and may be used for either takeoff or landing.
The Maule M-7 is a family of single-engine light aircraft that has been manufactured in the United States since the mid-1980s.
The Messerschmitt Bf 109 is a German World War II fighter aircraft that was the backbone of the Luftwaffe's fighter force.
The Messerschmitt Me 262, nicknamed Schwalbe (German: "Swallow") in fighter versions, or Sturmvogel (German: "Storm Bird") in fighter-bomber versions, was the world's first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft.
P-factor, also known as asymmetric blade effect and asymmetric disc effect, is an aerodynamic phenomenon experienced by a moving propeller,(Willits 3-49) that is responsible for the asymmetrical relocation of the propeller's center of thrust when an aircraft is at a high angle of attack.
Parasitic drag is drag that results when an object is moved through a fluid medium.
The Piper J-3 Cub is an American light aircraft that was built between 1937 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft.
The PA-20 Pacer and PA-22 Tri-Pacer are a family of four-place, strut braced, high-wing light aircraft that were built by Piper Aircraft in the post-World War II period.
The Piper PA-28 Cherokee is a family of light aircraft built by Piper Aircraft and designed for flight training, air taxi and personal use.
A private pilot licence (PPL) or, in the United States, a private pilot certificate, is a type of pilot licence that allows the holder to act as pilot in command of an aircraft privately (not for remuneration).
In aviation, a propeller strike, or prop strike, also called a sudden stoppage, is an accident in which an aircraft's propeller contacts any object and is forcibly stopped or slowed.
The Rolls-Royce RB.41 Nene was a 1940s British centrifugal compressor turbojet engine.
A rudder is a primary control surface used to steer a ship, boat, submarine, hovercraft, aircraft, or other conveyance that moves through a fluid medium (generally air or water).
