Get hands-on understanding of Flight mechanics. Apply it to the critical review of a flight accident report, or to the set up of a flight test program, or for drafting the preliminary design of an airplane.
How do planes take off? How do they fly? How do pilots maintain control of them? And how high can airplanes fly?
Get answers to all these questions and more with this specialization exploring the fundamentals of flight mechanics. You will learn how the laws of physics apply to airplanes and discover important concepts in aviation including lift, drag, and propulsion.
Applied Learning Project
In each course, learners are invited to complete exercises in the form of case studies to put into practice the skills they have learned. These exercises are built around simulators allowing the manipulation of variables defined by the learner himself.
