Where can I find nice flutter animations/videos (other than YouTube) to add to a presentation without violating Copyright regulations ? It can either be for wings as well as blade arrays.
Are you aware of any OpenSource database on this topic ?
YouTube is really your best bet - is there any reason you wouldn't be able to use one of the many NASA videos?
If you need a release for legal reasons NASA is famously liberal about granting rights to their research/educational videos - just contact then and you'll almost certainly get an official "Sure, you can use it!"

In 1963, the C-130 was tested by the US Navy for air carrier operations. Have there been any other comparable or larger aircraft that have landed and taken off from the deck of an aircraft carrier? By large, I am referring to two parameters: wingspan and weight.
lift with unchanged attitude, such as a symmetric aileron movement, or an additional flaps extension? And then after the plane is airborne it is rotated to climbing attitude? The descriptions I can easily Google up point towards 1. However, while that makes perfect sense for tricycle gear I don't see how that would work with taildraggers. Pushing down on the tail would just increase...If I understand correctly, when a plane transitions from takeoff roll to being airborne, it is not something that happens "by itself" when the airspeed is high enough, but is caused by deliberate
When ATC gives you headings to fly, do they consider wind correction? In theory they should because they call it a heading and not a track, but do they? After all, the heading they want you to fly dep...
Pretty straightforward: what is the difference between forward flight, straight flight, level flight, and cruise flight in helicopters?
It's easy to go online and look at prices of a Cessna 172, but what are some examples of how to breakdown the real world costs of ownership? how much other maintenance should you plan for? How much does an engine overhaul cost? Insurance hangar etc.. It would be great to also get some typical costs and ranges, since some element are more predictable than others. Obviously the costs will vary based on individual aircraft and location, as well as over time, but I'm looking for information that would help someone make the buy/rent decision. Prices can also vary geographically. I'm asking
Are there any LSA aircraft that are IFR certified? A LSA would be the perfect private commuter plane for an instrument rated private pilot. If not, what are the most cost effective airplanes that are IFR certified? Is there anything cheaper than a C172? Just to be clear: I am asking about aircraft that are IFR certified, meaning that they can be flown IFR in IMC conditions. I am also aware that there is a huge difference between different countries with regard to aircraft certification so my question is mainly about the U.S.
I'm interested in short, or trick, take-offs - such as from platforms, tall trees, etc. I think that I should have a wind speed and direction measure an understanding of my wing surface area This will let me add to my intuition from regular launches (from sites with known-good launch conditions), and estimate how much velocity I need to add via a run / push. The methodology to count the wind measure seem a bit more grey, right now. I can have a sense of the wind where I am, but it may quickly change beyond my launch site. Since I'm considering how to launch from a stationary
that it must be engaged, or even operative. Simply "equipped", and also that this is to approve an aircraft for RVSM. From what I can find, there is no operational requirement for the autopilot to actually be working or engaged. Assuming that my MEL allows me to defer the autopilot and still fly, can I fly in RVSM airspace? Some people however say that if you are in RVSM airspace...FAR Part 91, Appendix G, Section 2 says: (c) Altitude-keeping equipment: All aircraft. To approve an aircraft group or a nongroup aircraft, the Administrator must find that the aircraft meets
I was watching some clips from Catch Me If You Can starring Leonardo DeCaprio as Frank Abagnale. I was wondering- If brought a ticket on an airline today, came dressed up like a pilot, would you, be able to sit in the cockpit? (assuming pilots are normally allowed to jumpseat in that jurisdiction) Say you come onboard the plane and present them a fake ID at the door. Is there anything to prevent this from happening, or are we still as vulnerable to this type of trick like in the movie?
