### Hint: 3 Words; Maintains the flying height constant as the head moves over the surface of the disk

Explanation
The air bearing surface refers to the part of a hard disk drive's head that comes into contact with the surface of the disk. It is designed in such a way that it maintains a constant flying height as the head moves over the disk. This is crucial because the flying height determines the distance between the head and the disk surface, and any variation in this distance can lead to data loss or damage to the disk. Therefore, the air bearing surface plays a critical role in ensuring the proper functioning and reliability of the hard disk drive.
