\"When an aircraft is in straight and level flight, the lift provided by the wings support the weight (W) of the aircraft and the load (L) is considered normal. The normal load is therefore equal to the weight of the aircraft.

However, when an aircraft manuvers or is subjected to changes in air speed over the lifting surfaces (such as wind gusts, and maneuvers) incremental loads are applied to the aircraft\'s structure. The amount of the incremental load is dependent upon the severity of the manuvers or turbulence.

The term used to describe the amount of
incremental load is called load factor.\"
