Flight control and aerodynamic surfaces are devices that allow for a pilot to manage and maintain the flight dynamics of an aircraft, consisting of numerous controls and structures that are spread across the fuselage, wings, and tail. Aircraft stabilizers in particular are a specific type of aerodynamic surface, allowing for a pilot to balance their pitch and yaw based on the design and implementation of such structures. The horizontal and vertical stabilizer are the two common stabilizers of aircraft, both of which are typically found at the rear end of the vehicle. While serving similar roles in attitude control, it is important to understand the differences between horizontal and vertical stabilizers so that they may correctly be used and maintained.

Fasteners are common assembly parts that may be used to mechanically join two or more components together. With a variety of fastener types available, a number of attachments can be made to accommodate varying assemblies and requirements. Within the realm of aviation in particular, fasteners are constructed with high quality and optimal strength attributes to assist in aircraft construction and repair. On a single Boeing 747-800 alone, half of the 6,000,000 parts used for assembly are fasteners. With the grand importance that such hardware serves for aviation applications, understanding the more common types and materials used can benefit those who work on or with aircraft.
