Pitch. The pitch angle. Pitch Aircraft


Pitch (fr. tangage- Pitching) - angular movementaircraftorShiprelative to the main (horizontal)transverseaxisinertia.

Pitch is a rotation of the aircraft about its transverse axis. If we denote the transverse axis X, the Corresponding corner Eylera - nutation angle β (θ - pitch angle). Changing the pitch angle of the aircraft is carried out by moving the wheel or RUS longitudinally.


The pitch angle is considered positive if the plane climbs (pitch up), the negative - if decreases (dive). The angle is changed by the elevators or any other control surfaces, replacing RV. The pitch angle affects the component of lift which balances the weight of the aircraft.
