ISAE-SUPAERO Launches a New MOOC about Flight Mechanics

"ABC of Flight Mechanics: How Do Planes Fly?": a MOOC dedicated to flight mechanics.

The notion of flight often defies our human terrestrial instincts. How does an airplane fly? How can a pilot maintain control? How high in the sky can an aircraft climb? How does a fighter pilot fly while spinning?

This online course (available in English) will cover many topics, such as atmospheric physics and Newton's laws applied to aircraft, as well as propulsion forces and longitudinal stability the question of traction.

The MOOC "ABC of Flight Mechanics" is aimed at general public with a specific level of scientific knowledge. Nevertheless, various levels of learning are available, thus it allows all students to take the course without needing to plenty understand the mathematical principles. Undergraduate students in aerospace engineering, trainees as well as novice and experienced pilots, journalists and professionals in the aeronautics domain (business, engineering, marketing, communications, etc.) and all aircraft enthusiasts will be able to enrich their knowledge.
