Say It...

Our aviation instructor was talking about the parts of the aircraft that provide stability.  For example, when a plane turns to the right, the left side is exposed to the relative (oncoming) wind, which then sort of blows the plane back a bit like a weather vane.  There are several parts of an airplane that create stability.

The instructor was discussing this stability in terms of the various forces operating on the aircraft.  He told us that the stability controls were designed to help keep the forces balanced when they went out of kilter.

I tried to figure out a way to make him say that the controls "bring balance to the Force," but the moment passed.
