Forces on an aircraft in flight are discussed, including how the attitude of the aircraft is controlled. Full size models or actual aircraft are used in the studio for a “guided tour” to inform about the instrumentation on board that separate these types of aircraft from hobby planes. A brief overview of how out-of-normal flight conditions are handled is presented. Mission and aircraft characteristics to be considered are the concluding discussion in this course.


1. Principles of flight and axes of rotation are presented.
2. Guided tour of fixed wing and rotor wing aircraft with discussion of instrumentation on board is covered.
3. Out-of-normal flight situations and commonly implemented fail-safes are presented.
4. Characteristics of aircraft being considered and those of the mission area are discussed.
