    When you are aerodynamic if you roll the aircraft you actually need into roll rudder because if I remember rightly the outboard wing is creating more lift by the effect of the aileron and thus is creating more drag which causes the aircraft to yaw towards the outboard wing.

    But if purely using yaw you need to use opposing aileron to counteract the secondary roll but you fall out the sky like a brick if you do that. Aint side slipping fun.

    you need to counteract the horizontal position when it is inverted by adding a bit of down elevator in order to keep it in horizontal flight whilst rolling.

    bah

    Becoming an aircraft pilot was a backup career for me....

    If i get a good class of degree, keep up my attitude at home and studying as well as part time work, hopefully my Dad may help me through funding

    why not?
    Because it makes you look like you're lying about the courses you applied for.

    btw you should have been more thorough blanking out Loughborough

    Yes......... I knew that so basically if the plane turns flat, that's called yawing?? i.e. you'll need opposite aileron to compensate for the rudder and vice versa?
    Not quite. If you yaw one way, and roll the other, you'll end up flying straight but out of balance. You'll be all squint.

    Blue Wolf's explanation is right. You apply into-turn rudder to stay balanced; but if for some reason you want to apply a great deal of rudder to yaw, you need opposite aileron. You don't tend to use the rudder for anything other than small corrections to stay in balance, depending on the torque effect caused by prop slipstream.

    Hi, my name is Rich and I'm going to Imperial this year. I want to join the ULAS and then apply for a job as fighter controller after i leave uni. Thing is, i used to have ashtma. I know that you can never be a pilot if this is the case, but if ur syptom free for at least 4 years you can join as ground crew.
    What about entry to the ULAS? Does the 4 year rule apply or not?

    Cheers,
    Rich
