WSC Components and Systems

Go back to the main Weight-Shift Control Aircraft Flight Page.

Weight-shift control (WSC) aircraft come in an array of shapes and sizes, but the basic design features are fundamentally the same. All WSC consist of a flexible wing made with a sail fitted over a rigid airframe. A separate carriage is the fuselage which consists of the flight deck, propulsion system, and landing gear.
