An aeroplane is a craft capable of lifting a weight heavier than air with the force from its wings via a propeller, engine or in older models by flapping the wings. The term airplane is used in America and Canada but aeroplane is used elsewhere across the globe.
All aeroplanes are either maunally or remotely controlled, remotely controllable planes are still in the early stages as many of the controls aren't easy to use or program. The three main types of widely avaliable planes are recreational, such as privately owned planes, cargo is the second type, for transporting food and other types of goods, and the final type is passenger, the most common type and is for getting the every day person from A to B as quickly as possible without getting caught up in roads and traffic jams.
