Q:

How can you increase lift and thrust on a plane?

A:

To increase lift, you must first increase the thrust, or the speed of the plane through the air. To do so, you need more powerful engines. Jet engines are some of the strongest out there. Whent the plane begins to move faster, more air is forced over the wing, producing more lift.
