Aerial refueling, also referred to as air refueling, in-flight refueling (IFR), air-to-air refueling (AAR), and tanking, is the process of transferring aviation fuel from one military aircraft (the tanker) to another (the receiver) during flight.
Aerobatics (a portmanteau of aerial-acrobatics) is the practice of flying maneuvers involving aircraft attitudes that are not used in normal flight.
Aerodynamics, from Greek ἀήρ aer (air) + δυναμική (dynamics), is the study of the motion of air, particularly its interaction with a solid object, such as an airplane wing.
The Aviation Week Network is a New-York based B2B publishing and event production company.
The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, tiltrotor military aircraft with both vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), and short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities.
The Boeing 777X is a new series of the long-range wide-body twin-engine Boeing 777 family that is under development by Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
The Boeing Everett Factory, in Everett, Washington, is an airplane assembly building owned by Boeing.
The Consolidated PBY Catalina, also known as the Canso in Canadian service, is an American flying boat, and later an amphibious aircraft of the 1930s and 1940s produced by Consolidated Aircraft.
The Convair XFY Pogo tail-sitter was an experiment in vertical takeoff and landing.
In fluid dynamics, drag (sometimes called air resistance, a type of friction, or fluid resistance, another type of friction or fluid friction) is a force acting opposite to the relative motion of any object moving with respect to a surrounding fluid.
In aviation, a drop tank (external tank, wing tank, or belly tank) is used to describe auxiliary fuel tanks externally carried by aircraft.
An electronic countermeasure (ECM) is an electrical or electronic device designed to trick or deceive radar, sonar or other detection systems, like infrared (IR) or lasers.
The EWR VJ 101 was an experimental German jet fighter vertical takeoff/landing (VTOL) tiltjet aircraft.
A fighter aircraft is a military aircraft designed primarily for air-to-air combat against other aircraft, as opposed to bombers and attack aircraft, whose main mission is to attack ground targets.
A fixed-wing aircraft is an aircraft, such as an airplane or aeroplane (note the two different spellings), which is capable of flight using wings that generate lift caused by the vehicle's forward airspeed and the shape of the wings.
The fuselage (from the French fuselé "spindle-shaped") is an aircraft's main body section.
A glider or sailplane is a type of glider aircraft used in the leisure activity and sport of gliding.
A hardpoint (more formally known as a station or weapon station) is a location on an airframe designed to carry an external or internal load.
Landing lights are lights, mounted on aircraft, that illuminate the terrain and runway ahead during takeoff and landing.
The Liebherr Group is a large equipment manufacturer based in Switzerland.
Lindenberg im Allgäu is the second largest town of the district of Lindau in Bavaria, Germany.
Marketing is the study and management of exchange relationships.
The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) AV-8B Harrier II is a single-engine ground-attack aircraft that constitutes the second generation of the Harrier Jump Jet family.
In modern language, a missile is a guided self-propelled system, as opposed to an unguided self-propelled munition, referred to as a rocket (although these too can also be guided).
A navigation light, also known as a running or position light, is a source of illumination on a vessel, aircraft or spacecraft.
The North American Aviation XB-70 Valkyrie was the prototype version of the planned B-70 nuclear-armed, deep-penetration strategic bomber for the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command.
The Rutan Quickie is a lightweight single-seat taildragger aircraft of composite construction, configured with tandem wings.
STOL is an acronym for a short takeoff and landing aircraft, which have short runway requirements for takeoff and landing.
A strobe light or stroboscopic lamp, commonly called a strobe, is a device used to produce regular flashes of light.
A tip jet refers to the jet nozzles at the tip of some helicopter rotor blades, to spin the rotor, much like a Catherine wheel firework.
Wing warping was an early system for lateral (roll) control of a fixed-wing aircraft.
Wingtip devices are intended to improve the efficiency of fixed-wing aircraft by reducing drag.
Wingtip vortices are circular patterns of rotating air left behind a wing as it generates lift.
The Wright Flyer (often retrospectively referred to as Flyer I or 1903 Flyer) was the first successful heavier-than-air powered aircraft.
