Flight Mechanics, Flight Control and Aeroelasticity

Flight Mechanics III (Flying Qualities)


The content discussed in Flight Mechanics II is extended in Flight Mechanics III by also including the pilot to consider human aspects. With the help of control theory methods the entire pilot-vehicle-system is analysed and evaluated based on handling quality criteria. To do so the students plan, conduct and evaluate tests flights in the simulator.
