Getting to understand the Flight Controls

Starting out your training for a Pilot's licence, you will need to know about the 3 axes and the plane's centre of gravity about which it moves, either pitching, rolling or yawing.

This requires also an understanding of the flight controls that will enable you to pitch, roll, yaw and control the plane in flight. These flight controls - ailerons, rudder and elevator - have primary and secondary effects and the article linked here explains this in more detail. It's essential to your understanding of flight and what keeps the aircraft's flight controllable.
