The module reviews fundamentals of flight mechanics and then introduces concepts of static and dynamic stability, its flight dynamics equations, and controls focusing on control panels and stick equations for pitch a conventional fixed-wing aircraft. Both symmetrical and asymmetrical motions are considered. It provides the student with some of the analytic tools needed to contribute to the design of a safe aircraft. The module is supplemented by a series of tutorials, a wind tunnel test contributing to understanding of dynamic stability and a three-day flight course in the national flight centre in Cranfield, where the students experience the concepts of flight dynamics studied in this module.
