How Does a Plane Fly?

Before we go flying we’ve got to go over some basic aerodynamics. Watch this video, made in 1968, for some of this stuff.

I will warn you, this material is a little bit more advanced than some of the other stuff at Junior Flyer. Do your best, and watch it a few times if you have to.

Grimly is a Check Captain, which means he is involved in training pilots and checking to see if they are good enough to pass their many tests and check flights. He is a misunderstood person who, despite his gruff exterior, genuinely wants to help our pilots be the best they can be. Sadly, most of our pilots liken him to the Grim Reaper, and would prefer not to fly with him.
