CATEGORY IS ONE OF THE THREE KINDS OF PILOT RATINGS THAT ALLOWS YOU TO FLY A BROAD CLASSIFICATION OF AIRCRAFT.
Harnesses the air flow to be airborne using the plane's wings. It uses propellers or jet turbines for horizontal thrust.
Flies by displacing the air downwards. This is done through rotating blades at the top. Additional blades act as turning aids.
Uses the thrust of the air like a airplane, but dosen't have an engine and has to be taken to an optimum height before being released to fly using its wing.
These work on the phenomenon of buoyancy caused by a lower gas density inside the aircraft with respect to the surrounding air.
These aircrafts are capable of vertical take-offs and landings caused by engine generated thrust. Their horizontal flight mechanism is different from the rotorcrafts.
Has a motor to propel it forward as the parachute helps in the lift and gliding.
The aircraft flight control is done by the pilots by shifting their weight against a triangular control bar attached to the wings. Hence the name. These use a glider and rudder mechanism.
