I would like to recognize all of the highly skilled certified Technicians that took an oath to hold in sacred trust the rights and privileges conferred upon them. Knowing full well that the safety and lives of others are dependent upon their skills and judgment. They never knowingly subject others to risk that they would not be willing to assume themselves, or those dear to them.The First AMT was Charles E. Taylor, or "Charlie", he was the Wright Brothers Technician. Sadly, history almost forgot the contributions that Charlie made to aviation. When Orville and Wilbur needed an engine to power their Wright Glider, they were unable to find a manufacturer who could build one to their specifications. This is when they turned to Charlie. Having helped build and assemble a lot of the parts for the Wright Flyer the Wrights asked Charlie if he could build the engine. The answer was, "Sure".Starting from a solid block of metal and using basic tools such as a drill, lathe and some simple hand tools Charlie built the first aircraft engine and all this from a rough drawing made on a napkin! The Wrights determined they needed an engine that could not weigh more than 180 pounds and had to deliver 8-9 horsepower. With the skill, knowledge and integrity Charlie possessed he provided the Wrights with a four-cylinder engine with four-inch stroke and four-inch bore weighing 150 ponds and delivering 13 horsepower on the brake. All this was done in only six weeks! This engine was more than capable of carrying the weight of 625 pounds of machines and man.In December 1903 history was made. But history almost forgot the man who helped turn the Wright Glider into the Wright Flyer.Like Charlie, thousands of skilled and professional men and women have follow his footsteps. These men and women, carry the burden of an incredible weight. That weight is aircraft safety! As a certified AMT myself I take great pride in all of them for fixing it right the first time.Joe FerreiraDirector Airline Division Teamsters ... See MoreSee Less

There are four forces that act on an aircraft in flight lift weight thrust and drag from Newton's first law of motion we know that an object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion (constant velocity) will stay in force if there is no net external force the object will maintain a constant velocity In an aircraft in flight can produce no net external force in this situation the lift is Equal to the weight and the thrust is equal to the drag the closest example of this condition is a cruising airliner while the weight decreases due to fuel burned the change is very small relative to the total aircraft weight the aircraft maintains a constant airspeed called the cruise velocity ...
