Flight mechanics - Propulsive balance and energy

ISAE-SUPAERO

This course on flight mechanics focuses on energy management, speed, and altitude control. It comprehensively covers the relationship between thrust, speed, and altitude, as well as the various sources of drag. Students will gain insights into propulsive balance, flight regimes, best climb speed, propulsion ceiling, cruise performance, and the evolution of range with weight.

• Gain a deep understanding of the equation of propulsion, drag expression, and thrust theory
• Explore drag variation with speed, propulsion balance, and stability in different flight regimes
• Learn about specific distance, cruise altitude, Breguet-Leduc equation, and payload range diagram for cruise performance

Throughout the course, learners will engage in quizzes, self-evaluations, and assessments to reinforce their understanding of the concepts.
