Ever wonder how planes fly? Learn about the science of flight through exciting experiments using simple materials. Put your knowledge to the test: design your own aircraft from scratch, in whichever way you want it, using a computer game called SimplePlanes, then test to see if it really flies!


  1. Describe the ways in which forces may change the motion of an aircraft (thrust, lift, drag, weight).
  2. Describe how lift is produced in terms of action-reaction force pairs.
  3. Show understanding that the weight of an aeroplane may be taken as acting at a single point known as its centre of gravity.
  4. Explain the effects of friction (air resistance) to the motion of an aircraft.
  5. Design, build and safely land an aircraft.
