UCK 441E - Flight Stability and Control

Course Objectives

1.Aircraft flight stability and control is one of a basic necessary courses for
teaching of an aeronautical engineering students.
2.This subject is given to students after Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics and
Automatic Control courses.
3.Stability and control are among the most important aspects of the analysis
and design of aircrafts.
4.Analysis of flying and handling characteristics and successful design of
automatic flight control systems.
