In 1917 the SAE had an Aeronautical Division which diagrammed and identified the stick controls and rudder used to control aircraft.Altitude Control diagrammed the forward and back movement of the stick to give up-down control through elevator movement. Balancing Control diagrammed the left/right sides of machine down by means of side movement of stick through aileron movement. Right and Left Control was done with the feet through rudder movement. SAE had merged with the Aeronautical Society in 1916 and has been instrumental in setting government standards for aircraft construction, maintenance and safety.
