1. Parts of an Aircraft Vocabulary

An aircraft is a machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the air. It counters the force of gravity by using either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an airfoil, or in a few cases the downward thrust from jet engines. Common examples of aircraft include airplanes, helicopters, airships, gliders, and hot air balloons.

Knowing and remembering the names of the different parts and sections of an aircraft/airplane in English is essential for both flying a plane and wanting to become a pilot.

  • nose

the front part of an aircraft

  • jet engine

a type of engine that combines air and burning fuel to create power for a jet plane

  • tailplane

either of the parts at the back of a plane that look like small wings

  • wings

one of the long flat parts on both sides of a plane that allow it to fly

  • flap

a part of the wing of a plane that moves up and down to help to control the plane

2. Parts of Ships & Boats Vocabulary

A boat is a watercraft of a large range of sizes designed to float, plane, work or travel on water. Small boats are typically found on inland waterways or in protected coastal areas. However, boats such as the whaleboat were designed for operation from a ship in an offshore environment. In modern naval terms, a boat is a vessel small enough to be carried aboard another vessel.

Boats have a wide variety of shapes, sizes and construction methods due to their intended purpose, available materials or local traditions.

A ship is a large watercraft that travels the world’s oceans and other sufficiently deep waterways, carrying passengers or goods, or in support of specialized missions, such as defense, research and fishing. Ships are generally distinguished from boats, based on size, shape, load capacity, and tradition.
