WATCH: Amy’s Aviation Pilot Controls


Episode 6 from the brand new Amy’s Aviation series is here!

Amy is a genius when it comes to anything that flies and she’ll be taking us all over the place and teaching us everything she knows about aeroplanes.

We’ll get to look at all types of planes from rackety old bi-planes to delta-winged stealth bombers.

Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 16.11.19In this episode we’re learning all about how a pilot controls a plane. Old planes use mechanical cables and levers to connect the controls to the wings, flaps and ailerons. But newer planes use something called ‘Fly By Wire’ which uses electronic signals and computers!
