Table of contents


This course starts with a theoretical overview of 3D equations of motion applied for aircraft simulations. In this initial topic, a classical mechanics overview with a review of aerodynamics will provide the theoretical base for the second section. The student will understand how to interpret the aerodynamic derivatives and a discussion on typical values for each aerodynamic derivative will be done.
In the second section, we will cover Matlab & Simulink Intro and start the modeling of a generic complete aircraft. This final model will be used for trim analysis, aircraft dynamic modes estimation, simulation and can also be used for control law design, flight control sizing and design and many more. You can also try to modify the aerodynamic and mass data to analyze your own aircraft designs.
Finally, in the last section, we will cover the process for Part 25 aircraft certification. If you don’t know what Part 25 is, don’t worry, together we will learn all aspects of current regulations. We will cover all the way from understanding the requirements and how to demonstrate compliance with them up to the flight test campaign and maneuvers used in real aircraft certification regarding flying qualities.
This course is filled with real examples and is a more hands-on approach for a flight mechanics engineer.

Product Development Engineer
Hi, I’m Bruno. I live in Brazil and first of all I am an aviation enthusiast. I am also a Mechanical Engineer with a master’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering.
I have a private pilot’s license and I am also a flight simulator geek.
Currently , I work in a world leader aircraft manufacturer as a flight sciences engineer with executive, commercial and defense jets.
My goal is to unite my experience and love for teaching and provide a theoretical and practical view of aircraft design all the way from conception to certification.
