Drag, along with thrust, lift and weight, is one of the four forces acting on an aircraft during straight-and-level unaccelerated flight. Drag is an aerodynamic force, generated by the difference in velocity between the aircraft and the atmosphere in which it flies. Drag can be considered as a form of aerodynamic friction, which acts in the opposite direction to the direction of motion of an aircraft, thus opposing the aircraft’s motion through the air.
