More than one century after the Wright brothers' first flight, the flight still defy our intuition. You will learn here how to name the different parts of the airplane and how to describe and quantify its geometry. For that, we need now to share a precise vocabulary to describe the airplane's movement and attitude in space, and a refresher on basic general mechanic principles. You will remind how Newton's 2nd law allows you to determine what force must be applied on an apple - or on an airplane, to modify the magnitude and direction of its speed. Coming back on the concepts of kinetic energy and potential energy, you will discover the very useful concept of total height and you will be able to explain how an airplane can quickly exchange speed for altitude, while changes in total height are much slower.

I have a great experienced in following this course. Great explanation and instruction from ISAE-SUPAERO adn Mr. Eric
Very good course that give the basics principles of Flight Mechanics, recommended for anybody interested to learn aerospace engineering
The videos were extremely concise, and I felt I really learned a lot from this course. Although I'm 13 years old, I managed to push through with my love for planes.
It was a really great course with short and informative videos and also very meaningful quizzes and assignment. I am glad that I chose this course.
