Aircraft controls, Other Engineering

The aerodynamic flight controls of a typical aeroplane include ailerons (British: ξ ("Xi"); US: da or δa), elevator (British: η ("eta"); US de or δe), and rudder (British: ζ ("zeta"); US: dr or δr). The aerodynamic flight controls are indicated in Fig. 1.1-1. The British sign conventions are
