About this Course
Participants in this course will be taught the technological aspects of aircraft engines, their design, and operation. Additionally, economical parameters and legal issues of approval will be introduced. Based on the flight mission analysis and other constraints, the methodology and objective of engine design will be illustrated taking into account component matching and aircraft integration. Furthermore, participants will learn to estimate the technological potential of advanced propulsion concepts.
What you’ll learn
- Mission Analysis & requirements Statutory registration regulations
