I’m studying for my Writing class and need an explanation.
Each student will write a research paper centered around retractable gear aircraft systems, including mechanical systems for both operating and preventing gear up landings, safety concerns, common problems experienced, a review of inadvertent gear up landing accidents/incidents, and the psychological aspects of preventing gear up landings. The paper should address the various lessons learned from previous such incidents, and address what measures (procedural, technological, etc.) should be adopted to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. The style required for formatting the paper is American Psychological Association (APA), 7th edition, guidelines. The paper will be graded on accuracy and completeness of information, cohesiveness, spelling and grammar, and number and quality of references. The paper should be a minimum of 5 pages of content (typewritten, double-spaced, one inch margins, and no larger than 12 point font). A minimum of 5 quality references, appropriately cited in the text and appropriately listed on a reference page, should be used. In addition to the 5 pages of content, a title page and a reference list are also required.
