If you observe the wings of any aircraft you will find the wings to be curved on the top side and flat on the bottom side. When the aircraft speeds, the air flow is split by the wings. The air on the top side of the wing moves relatively slower than the air moving below the wing due to the curved shape on the top creating lift. The wings also have flaps and spoilers (not like the one you have on the tail of a sports car but with similar concept) the flaps force the air flowing at the bottom of the wing downwards creating more lift at low speeds, which helps during landing of the aircraft. The spoilers which are located on the top side of the wing work as air brakes acting opposite as flaps which help the aircraft to reduce speed and height quickly or maintain constant speed during descending. Next time you go on an airplane while landing or before take off observe the wings there is very good chance of seeing the flaps and spoilers doing what there are suppose to do.

Read this completely you have the best answer. Students of physics and aerodynamics are taught that airplanes fly as a result of Bernoulli’s principle (fluid dynamics also works for aerodynamics), which says that if air speeds up the pressure is lowered. Thus a wing generates lift because the air goes faster over the top creating a region of low pressure, and thus lift. if the air flow is faster air pressure is lowered, it happens above the airplane wings because the wings are designed to path the air flow higher on top of the wing. The denser air below the wings pushes the airplane upwards because the air pressure above the wings are low (high dense air occupies the low dense area immediately, it pushes the plane upwards with it). below the airplane wings : - air pressure is high because of low speed air flow (high density air) above the airplane wings : - air pressure is low because of high speed air flow (low density air) high density air pushes (flow) towards low density air area for more information open the links given below as source

Lower air pressure above Wings. Nd higher under. Air moves from under d wings to over it giving d plane a lift.
