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.

Very insightful! Would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in aviation and wanting to deepen their knowledge in the field...
This course was more challenging than I expected but its a great course thank you Eric!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was awasome. There is some missings in me but now I know them.
Thanks to you.
it is a great course for beginers to enjoy an learn about basic flight mechanics
