However, it is a good idea to have good knowledge of aerodynamics and flight theory to be able to fly safely.

If one of the first three is taken out of the equation, gravity and weight will take over and cause the plane to descend. It is up to the pilot to understand how to make them equal in order to keep the airplane in flight or descend at an acceptable rate, in order to safely land the airplane....   [tags: Transportation]
