Control its decent what?

Airplanes can manipulate the speed and direction of falling with things called wing flaps, ailerons, elevators, and rudder(s). I'm sure gliders have some sort of thing like this, but I didn't study glider mechanics in grade 6.

BONK.

I had made that post because you were using decent incorrectly. I think you meant descent

–noun 1. the act, process, or fact of descending
