Advanced Flight Mechanics



Graduate-level course with advanced treatment of flight dynamics and control. The course focuses on fixed-wing aircraft and introduces the flight mechanics aspects of rotary-wing aircraft. Topics include longitudinal and lateral-directional flight motions, stability derivative expressions, effect of nonlinearity, flight under disturbances, flying and handling qualities, modern control theories relevant to flight dynamics, flight control strategies, stability augmentation systems, and autopilots/flight simulators.
