AERO Friedrichshafen is a trade show dedicated to European general aviation.
An aileron (French for "little wing" or "fin") is a hinged flight control surface usually forming part of the trailing edge of each wing of a fixed-wing aircraft.
An aircraft fairing is a structure whose primary function is to produce a smooth outline and reduce drag.
In aeronautics, bracing comprises additional structural members which stiffen the functional airframe to give it rigidity and strength under load.
A cantilever is a rigid structural element, such as a beam or a plate, anchored at one end to a (usually vertical) support from which it protrudes; this connection could also be perpendicular to a flat, vertical surface such as a wall.
In aeronautics, chord refers to the imaginary straight line joining the leading and trailing edges of an aerofoil.
A composite material (also called a composition material or shortened to composite, which is the common name) is a material made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties that, when combined, produce a material with characteristics different from the individual components.
Conventional landing gear, or tailwheel-type landing gear, is an aircraft undercarriage consisting of two main wheels forward of the center of gravity and a small wheel or skid to support the tail.
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.
Flaps are a type of high-lift device used to increase the lift of an aircraft wing at a given airspeed.
A flat-four or horizontally opposed-four is a flat engine with four cylinders arranged in two horizontal banks of two, each bank lying opposite the other, a crankcase between them.
The fuselage (from the French fuselé "spindle-shaped") is an aircraft's main body section.
A hinge is a mechanical bearing that connects two solid objects, typically allowing only a limited angle of rotation between them.
A hydraulic brake is an arrangement of braking mechanism which uses brake fluid, typically containing glycol ethers or diethylene glycol, to transfer pressure from the controlling mechanism to the braking mechanism.
Italy (Italia), officially the Italian Republic (Repubblica Italiana), is a sovereign state in Europe.
The Jabiru 2200 is a lightweight naturally aspirated, pushrod four-stroke, flat four, air-cooled aircraft engine produced by Jabiru Aircraft.
Landing gear is the undercarriage of an aircraft or spacecraft and may be used for either takeoff or landing.
The leading edge is the part of the wing that first contacts the air;Crane, Dale: Dictionary of Aeronautical Terms, third edition, page 305.
A monoplane is a fixed-wing aircraft with a single main wing plane, in contrast to a biplane or other multiplane, each of which has multiple planes.
Port and starboard are nautical and aeronautical terms for left and right, respectively.
A propeller is a type of fan that transmits power by converting rotational motion into thrust.
The Rotax 912 is a naturally aspirated, air- and water-cooled, horizontally opposed four-cylinder, four-stroke, gear reduction-drive engine commonly used on certified aircraft, light sport aircraft, ultralight aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles.
The Sauer S 2200 UL is a 4 stroke aircraft engine designed for homebuilt and ultralight aircraft.
The Sauer S 2400 UL is a 4 stroke aircraft engine for homebuilt and ultralight aircraft.
Tandem, or in tandem, is an arrangement in which a team of machines, animals or people are lined up one behind another, all facing in the same direction.
Tricycle gear is a type of aircraft undercarriage, or landing gear, arranged in a tricycle fashion.
Ultralight aviation (called microlight aviation in some countries) is the flying of lightweight, 1- or 2-seat fixed-wing aircraft.
41xx steel is a family of SAE steel grades, as specified by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
