 Tailplane - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However, not all fixed-wing aircraft have tailplanes, such as those configured with canards (where the "tail-plane" is located in front), flying-wing aircraft, where there is no tail, and v-tail aircraft where the rudder and tail-plane is combined to form two diagonal surfaces.
A tailplane is a small lifting surface located behind the main lifting surfaces of a fixed-wing aircraft as well as other non-fixed wing aircraft such as helicopters and gyroplanes.
This in turn causes a nose-up or nose-down pitching moment on the aircraft, which is used to control the aircraft in pitch.
