One such feature is their wing setup, which can either be high wing or low wing with regard to the location of the wing on the fuselage.

For a vast majority of modern aircraft, the thrust required for forward momentum is created through the combustion of fuel-and-air mixtures within engines, allowing for exhaust to be created for driving systems and propulsion.

In this blog, we will discuss the air induction system in brief detail, allowing you to have a better understanding of how they work, and what types one may come across in their aviation career.
