UCK 441E - Flight Stability and Control

Course Objectives

• To teach basics of flight stability and control of aircrafts. is one of a basic necessary courses for teaching of an aeronautical engineering students.
• To integrate knowledge from Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics and Automatic Control courses towards aircraft stability and control.
• To enable students to analyze flying and handling characteristics of aircrafts and to design automatic flight control systems using MATLAB and SIMULINK.

Course Description
