HAPPY INTERNATIONAL CIVIL AVIATION DAY, FRIENDS, CUSTOMERS, PARTNERS!
The photo shows a replica of the Henri Farman III airplane, made by a Lithuanian aviation enthusiast. For this, he used authentic drawings from 1910. Symbolically, today, after the first test flights of the aircraft, the Transport Competence Agency will grant a special certificate of airworthiness.
An aileron is an integral part of every airplane today, which is installed at the ends of the wings. When the aileron on one side of the wing rises, the aileron on the other wing descends. A wing with an aileron that is raised pitches down, while another aileron that is lowered causes the wing to pitch up. This allows the aircraft to be rotated about its longitudinal axis and at the same time helps the aircraft to make a smoother turn.
Ailerons were first used in aviation on the Henri Farman III aircraft in 1909 and were an innovation in aircraft at the time.
