Mankind has been developing methods of flight for centuries. Airplanes are the most effect method of air travel.
Wings allow airplanes to fly using air pressure. Wings were first made of wood and canvas. Modern wings are designed using computerized systems and a mixture of building materials.
Pilots and engineers check airplanes before takeoff to make sure everything is in order. Air flow pushes the tail downward and the plane leaves the ground.
Pilots must greatly reduce the speed of an airplane before landing. Modern planes have retractable landing gear. Pilots are tested on landing using flight simulators.
The first flying machines were designed during the Renaissance. The first successful airplane was built in the 20th century. Airplanes use air flow and pressure to fly.
