This article presents a bi-dimensional model of flight and describes theimplementation of a flight simulator able to describe the different phases of longitudinal flightof a real airplane. After identifying the relevant physical variables, the equations of motion arewritten and solved using a numerical integration method. Using computer simulations, flightpaths and time evolution of the kinematics variables are analyzed for a complete flight of alight commercial airplane. The simulations take into account and reproduce the basic actionsof a pilot to control the flight. The main maneuvers involved in pilotage are also predicted andexplained in terms of model parameter variations inducing transitions in the phase space.Finally, the steady-state configurations are analyzed by means of the linearization of equationsin order to gain meaningful information about the dynamical stability of the system
