Lost and Found
A set of keys was found at the field and are in the enclosed case on the front wall of the snack bar.
Constant chord wings are simple, it is found by multiplying the width x the length. In aircraft terms that is:
Wing Area = Wing Span x Wing Chord
To find the area of a tapered wing, use the formula for a Trapezoid. Find the average chord and multiply it times the wing span:
Average Chord = ( Root Chord + Tip Chord ) ÷ 2
Wing Area = Wing Span x Average Chord
If the wing has multiple tapers then calculate each trapezoidal area and add them together.
If a Delta Wing has a Tip Chord greater than 0 inches, then use the formula for a tapered wing as above.
If the Tip Chord is 0" then use the formula for a triangle:
Wing Area = 1/2 x Wing Span x Root Chord
