1 Most times we think the important part of controlling a plane is getting it up in the air but once up in the air, how do you control the massive object when encountering difficult circumstances? One of the most common difficulties pilots deal with is wake turbulence. Wake turbulence is a disturbance in the atmosphere that forms behind an aircraft as it prepares to get in the air, passes thru the air and until touch down. The unfortunate encounter of a wake turbulence is what caused the the crash of American Airlines flight 587. When an aircraft is getting ready for take off it must produce lift to get up in the air. Lift is a force which is created by different levels of pressures above and below an aircraft’s wing. The highest pressure occur under the wing to help lift the plane and the lowest pressure occur on top of the wind to help balance this motion. Once the plane takes off these high and low pressures under and above the wing begin to roll downstream of the wing in a swirling motion.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
