Aeronautical engineering - 2021

Introduction to flight mechanics

OBJECTIVE :

This training session will enable engineers (or senior technicians) working in an aeronautical environment (airframes, engines, systems…) to acquire basic knowledge on airplane flight characteristics (performances and flying qualities) and the different limitations of aircraft's flight domain.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

Course extends on 5 days (33 hours) including:

  • 20 hours of presentations
  • 10 hours of design offices including telemetry analysis
  • 1 flight session on light airplane
  • 1 flight simulator session
  • 1 round table

GENERAL APPROACH :

The pedagogical approach insists on the understanding of physical phenomenon rather than on mathematical modelisation.

Wind tunnel demonstrations, in flight experimentation as well as simulation and practical exercises occupy one third of the whole training session.

PREREQUISITE :

Level: Basic scientific knowledge

In mathematics, derivative and differential equation concepts will be used.

In physics, some familiarity with Newton principles for a solid body (basic laws of solid dynamics) is necessary: movement of the centre of gravity and around the centre of gravity.

COURSE DIRECTOR(S) :

Eric POQUILLON:

Flight Test Engineer and Flight Dynamics teacher

Head Air and Space Vehicles Design and Control Department at ISAE-SUPAERO.
