|Content / Educational Objectives||The lecture “Introduction to Flight Mechanics and Flight Control” shall give an overview over the subjects, which are provided by the institute of Flight System Dynamics during the master study “Aeronautical Engineering”. The following headwords shall describe the main content of the lecture:
These headwords cover a wide range of the subjects, which are content of the lectures “Aircraft Performance”, “Flight Dynamics, Stability and Control” and “Fundamentals of Flight Control”. Since those lectures explain the issues on a high level of detail, the intention of the present lecture is giving an overview. Therefore, simplifying assumptions, such as “ no wind”, “flat non-rotating earth” or “thrust exactly in direction of speed” are introduced to reduce the complexity.
