A chemical substance which is used as a source of energy
Noise Abatement
A policy that controls the noice impact upon a community surroundign an airport
Lean Mixture
A mixture of gasoline and air in which there is less fuel and more air
Instrument on the outside (usually on a wing) which determines the airspeed for the airspeed indicator; looks at difference between "rammed air" and "still air"
A device that gives an indication of the landing direction of an airport
A type of engine that processes air and fuel by a back and forth movement of its internal parts
Circuit Breakers
Protect the system from eletrical overloads
A term which applies to the airplane's engine and its accessories

The act of making a given volume of gas smaller
The art and science of creating charts and maps
Forms a part of the chamber in which the fuel is compressed and burned
In the example of an airplane engine, it is the movement of the piston, within the combustion chamber, to its limits
Combustion Chamber

A method of transferring a portion of the earth's surface onto a flat chart
The process of allowing a precise amount of fuel to pass
Exhaust Valve
Needed to let the exhaust gases out
Mandatory Signs
Red background/White numbers and letters
Rich Mixture
A mixture of gasoline and air in which there is more gasoline and less air than needed for normal combustion
A ratio of fuel to air in which, upon combustion, all of the fuel is burned. In energy terms, it is 15 parts air to 1 part gasoline
Term used to describe elevations; depicted by color tins ,contour lines and shading
True Airspeed
The actual speed of the airplane through the air
Calibrated Airspeed
Indicated airspeed corrected for the erros that may occur in the instrument itself
Intake Valve
Needed to let the fuel/air into the cylinder
Restriction on the carburetor whcih causes air from the outside to accelerate as it passes
Measures pressure and displays this as height above sea level
