For passengers, turbulence can be quite scary as they feel the plane moving around without knowing what’s going on. In order to feel more relaxed, it’s nice to know what is turbulence and how it’s caused. How do pilots cope with turbulence?
How do pilots navigate through clouds and at night ?
How do we find our destination without using Google maps to lead us the way?
How is altitude determined?
I really liked this question, as it is something relatively easy to explain, but at the same time quite interesting!
In this animation, you can see both airplanes flying at the same altitude, but at a different distance from the ground. How do we determine our altitude?
