A small plane or surface capable of being manipulated by the pilot of a flying machine to control lateral balance; a hinged wing tip; a lateral stabilizing or balancing plane.
A hinged or movable portion of an airplanes wing, at the trailing edge, primarily used to induce roll.
A control surface for controlling roll or bank. There is one aileron on each wing, and they move in opposite directions. They are controlled by turning the control yoke, like a car's steering wheel.
Movable control surfaces mounted in the trailing edge of each wing to control roll
The part of the airplane that control the roll .
A movable, hinged panel along the rear edge of each airplane wing. Ailerons swivel up or down. They always swivel in opposite directions. If one aileron is up, the other is down. Operating the ailerons makes the airplane roll to one side or the other.
Movable aerofoil fitted near the wing-tip of an aeroplane and designed to make possible a rolling movement about the longitudinal axis. Ailerons are invariably connected differentially to the control column so that when one is raised to depress a wing the other is lowered to raise its wing.
Control surface on trailing edge of wing providing control in roll
A small hinged portion of an airplane's wing, used to make an airplane roll, or turn around its long axis.
This is really an airplane term, but is easier to say than "cyclic roll." Ailerons are what banks a plane left or right, but does not really exist on a helicopter.
Control surface located on the outboard section of the wings that deflect up or down to increase or decrease the lift produced by each wing and produce a rolling motion.
an airfoil that controls lateral motion
a flap on the trailing edge of an aircraft wing that induces roll
a moveable surface on the trailing edge of the wing which provides directional control of the roll of the aircraft
a pivoting section to help the plane turn
a movable surface on an aircraft wing, it is used to control rolling
Control surface on an aircraft wing that produces roll.
one on each wing; the moveable control surfaces on the trailing edge of the wing that cause a change about the roll axis
aircraft roll control
Ailerons are movable control surfaces that are present on the trailing edge of both the right and left wings of a plane. Each surface moves in opposite directions enabling a plane to roll right or left. For a plane to roll to the left, the left wing aileron moves upwards while the aileron on the right wing moves downwards. An upward moving aileron destroys some of the lift being generated on a wing while a downward moving aileron increases the lift of a wing. (Ailerons in German is Querruder, for you scale sailplane modelers, or when you just can't remember which is which on those instructions written in German. Click the Altavista Translator for more help with this.)
Hinged control surface located at the trailing edge of each wing, that provides control of the airplane about the roll axis. Ailerons move in opposite directions in order to provide lift on one wing and the opposite force on the other, in the process "rolling" the aircraft in the direction of the wing with the raised aileron.

Movable control surfaces on the wings of an aircraft that cause it to roll about an imaginary axis along its fuselage ..
air pressure + aircraft
A control surface at the end of the wing that either decreases or increases lift at the wingtip, and rolls the aeroplane about its length. With the port aileron down and the starboard one up, an aeroplane will roll clockwise from the pilot's perspective. wing warping had the same effect but was largely replaced by the more efficient aileron method.
A control surface, usually attached to or part of the trailing edge of the wing, used to cause the plane to roll. With standard ailerons, raising the left aileron and simultaneously lowering the right aileron will give a bank to the left.
Ailerons normally form the outer trailing edge of the profile of a wing. Ailerons operate differentially such that when one aileron is lowered creating more lift - that wing tends to rise and conversely, the other aileron being raised destroys lift - and the wing on that side tends to fall. Ailerons are used to rotate an aircraft about it's longitudinal axis producing a rolling effect.
roll control surface.
surface on the outer edge of a wing that moves up and down; controls the roll of an airplane
A moveable surface hinged to the trailing edge of a plane's wing to control roll.
The hinged control surface on the back (trailing edge) of the wing furthest away from the fuselage. Servo power applied to the aileron makes the plane turn or roll.
Control surfaces hinged at the back of the wings which by deflecting up or down help to bank the airplane.
Control surface attached to wingtip trailing edge (or between wingtips on some early biplanes) to provide control in roll about the aircraft's longitudinal axis.
A hinged surface on the wing of an aircraft or spacecraft used to adjust the craft's angle of flight.
