There are multiple ways; here are two:

1. Create an extruded poly matching the elevator shape, stencil it into the flight deck, and select/remove the stenciled poly.

2. Create the elevator shape and Boolean/subtract it from the flight deck.

If there's no such thing as a stupid question, what kind of questions do stupid people ask?
