Why the wings on your plane won’t snap off

Fear of Flying School interview

Do you worry about the wings on your plane SNAPPING off?

I sure used to. And it scared the HELL out of me.

Especially watching them bounce up and down as the plane was taxiing to the runway.

Or – WORSE – seeing them bouncing when flying through turbulence.

If you can relate to what I’m talking about, don’t miss this interview with an expert in aircraft construction.

Rainer Groh is completing a PhD in Aerospace Engineering at Bristol University in the UK.

And when he’s not studying, he shares his love for aircraft engineering on his Aerospace Engineering blog.

After you’ve listened to this interview, you’ll understand why the wings WON’T come off.

That’s because Rainer will explain:

  • What the wings do (hint: its more than provide lift).
  • How they’re designed.
  • How they’re built.
  • How they’re maintained.
  • How airlines deal with unexpected technical issues.
  • And much, much more.

Now I have a question for you…
