31 of68 Root and Tip Chord Training
  A wing has a root chord and a tip chord, just like a tree as a root and a tip.
Some wings have different chord lengths near the fuselage and at the tip. We call the chord length near the fuselage the root chord, and the chord length at the end of the wing the tip chord. Think of the wing like a tree, and the fuselage as the ground: the part of the tree closest to the ground is the root, and the part farthest away is the tip.
