Flight control

OBJECTIVE :

This course will enable engineers working in the design, control, manufacture or utilization of aircraft or aeronautical equipment to acquire a general understanding of the issues related to flight control, mainly in the civil aircraft field.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 5 days (31 hours) and includes:

  • 28 hours of classroom-based learning
  • 2 hours of simulator-based demonstration
  • A day spent at Airbus
  • 1 panel discussion

GENERAL APPROACH :

By providing participants with a general understanding of the issues related to flight control, this course aims to enabling learners to: situate their own work inside the aircraft itself, dialog with other specialists to better solve interface-related issues, and understand the point of view and the language of the men of synthesis, the users or crews.

Stakeholders active in the industry, airlines and ISAE (ISAE-SUPAERO, the Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace or National Higher French Institute of Aeronautics and Space) are chosen for their current involvement in the research, design, testing or use of aircraft.

PREREQUISITE :

Course level: Advanced

Notions of flight mechanics.The course is ideally suited to engineers with technical responsibilities in the design, manufacture, control, testing, utilization, sales or after-sales support of aircraft.
