ANN's Daily Aero-Term (11.11.06): Washout

Aero-Terms!

Aero-Terms are designed to be a daily reminder of the terms, names, acronyms and explanations of the unique language that populates the aviation world. Aerospace, sport aviation, fixed wing, helo, you name it... it's all fair game.

Aero-Terms should serve as a quick but intriguing reminder of the terms you may use every day, or an introduction to an aspects of the Aero-World you may not yet be familiar with. ANN also encourages readers to go beyond the FMI link, and further research any intriguing terms.

Suggestions for future Aero-Terms are ALWAYS welcome, as are additions or discussion of the explanations given for each Aero-Term.

Washout

The twist in an airfoil which causes less angle of attack at the tips than the root. For airplanes, this increases stability of the aircraft at slow speeds as the wing tips will stall after the center of the wing, avoiding accidental tip stalls. Someone who flunks out of pilot training.
