Aircraft Science For Engineering Technology

Credit Hours: 3.00. Required for AET. This course is an introduction to theory of flight, aircraft nomenclature, aircraft configurations, high speed flight, and helicopter configurations and rotor dynamics. Covers lift/drag and concepts for flight at an engineering technology level beyond that of flight ground school. Federal regulatory systems for aircraft design and persons other than flight personnel and associated technical documents are covered. Introduces center of gravity theory, defines how to locate centers of gravity, and introduces weight and balance procedures for engineering technology, not covered by flight ground school. This course teaches topics in the curriculum required by 14 CFR Part 147 as outlined in the School of Aviation and Transportation Technology's Part 147 Operations Manual approved by the FAA, and provides specific knowledge and skills needed for FAA certification examinations.
