What The Heck Is "pitch"?

Fri May 04, 2001 7:30 am

I was looking at the aircraft info parts of airliners.net, and they mention pitch a lot in regards to the seats. What is "pitch"?

The simple definition of "pitch" is where the nose of the aircraft is pointed in relation to the horizon.

So, the term "pitch down," would mean to lower the nose in relation to the horizon.

The term "pitch up," would mean to raise the nose in relation to the horizon.

Pitch is controlled by the elevators (in an airplane, anyway - helicopters are a different story) which are adjusted by either pushing forward, or pulling back on the stick/yoke.

Sorry, it has nothing to do with the distance to the seat in front of you.

Ok, forget everything I just said. My mistake for not reading the original post thouroughly. I mean, pitch still means what I said it does, but it also has a different meaning dealing with seats.

Sorry.

I think it's the distance from your seat to the next, i.e. the space that you have to sit on.

Hope it helps,
