Four forces act on an aircraft during straight-and-level unaccelerated flight; thrust, lift, weight and drag. Thrust is the force which propels an aircraft through the air, countering the effect of drag and working in the opposite direction. Thrust is a mechanical force that is generated by the engines of an aircraft and the greater the disparity between thrust and drag, the faster an aircraft will accelerate.
