A gentle reflection on flying at night.

SKU: AL-01 Categories: ,


Aileron Lullaby is a gentle reflection on flying at night. An aileron is a hinged flap found on the edge of an airplane wing, which controls the rolling or banking of the aircraft. Gentle rocking experienced in flight is due to the aileron on each wing working in contrary motion, in a form of mechanical counterpoint – one moves up, while the other moves down.
