YEAR 2018 -2019
WHO’S WHO
QUESTIONS
LESSON 01 - FORWARD
LESSON OUTCOMES

• In this lesson we will review the following:


1. What is “Introduction to Flight” and why do we
study it.
2. What knowledge do you expect to gain from this
subject, benefits to students.
3. References, and textbooks.
4. Lesson plan.
5. Grading system.
6. Simple rules to Success.
WHAT IS
“INTRODUCTION TO FLIGHT”

• “Introduction to Flight” presents the entrance door to the


science of aeronautical engineering as it provides the
basic knowledge required for aeronautical engineers in a
practical and direct way.
WHY DO WE STUDY
“INTRODUCTION TO
FLIGHT”

• Due to the highly complicated nature, wide application


range, fast technological developments in aeronautical
engineering, it is wise to give an overview to the students
about their field and in broad perspective in early stages
of the aeronautical engineering study. This will serve two
main goals:
1. A lot of knowledge covered as snapshot and
easily delivered in a short time.
2. Allow the students to decide which specific subject
or area they would like to pursue and specialized.
BENEFITS TO STUDENTS

• “Introduction to Flight” provides students with the


required basic knowledge in the field of aviation, such as
the aircraft, its main components, how do aircraft fly, how
is it possible to control an aircraft during its flight, what
are the phases of flights, what are the main forces
affecting the flight of aircraft. What types of aircraft are
there and its applications.
• Also it provides information about the atmosphere and
the effect of its changes on the aircraft during flight.
QUESTIONS
REFERENCES, AND
TEXTBOOKS

• There are a lot of references which deals with the


subject of introduction to flight.
• Some are very detailed and contains lots of information
and tries to link the students with academic subjects.
• Some others contain the minimum required knowledge
based on some international standards, and are more
into practical perspective.
REFERENCES, AND
TEXTBOOKS

• During the course of our study this year we will refer to


the following textbooks:
1. “Principles of Flight”, (JAR Ref 080), Jeppsen,
book 8, ATPL course.
2. “Principles of Flight”, Oxford Aviation Academy,
book 13, fourth edition, ATPL course.
3. “Introduction to Flight”, John D. Anderson,
McGraw Hill, 3rd edition (or newer).
REFERENCES, AND
TEXTBOOKS

• To distribute the required study material, including the


aforementioned textbooks and the lectures, students
may download them from the below link:

• The lectures will be updated weekly on Wednesdays


evening and will be available in pdf format.
REFERENCES, AND
TEXTBOOKS

• Authentication of Information
• Avoid all information from or on social media, forums,
discussions on unprofessional and unapproved groups.
• Always refer to an approved source of information.
• Always ask for the reference of any information.
LESSON PLAN

• During this annum, we will cover the following subjects:


1.Laws and Definitions.
2.The Flight Environment.
3. Aircraft Components and Terminology.
4. Forces Acting On An Aeroplane.
5. Lift.
6. Drag.
7. Flying Controls.
8. Lift Augmentation.
LESSON PLAN

9. Stalling.
10. Stability.
11. Ground Effect.
12. Propellers.
13. Asymmetric Flight.
14. High Speed Flight.
15. Flight in Adverse Weather Conditions.
16. Operating Limitations.
LESSON PLAN

• Taking into considerations national holidays, it is


expected that we can accomplish (26) lectures
during this annum.
• This will be enough to cover the required subjects
in our class.
GRADING SYSTEM

• To fulfil the requirements of your academic degree,


there must be a method to assess your level of
understanding for the subject.
• To do so the grading is divided into two main
sections:
1. Collective grade for the whole annum. 40%
2. The final assessment. 60%
GRADING SYSTEM

• The annum collective grade which is 40%, is


divided into the following:
1. Class participation: 10%
2. End of subject assessments: 10%.
3. Mid-term assessment: 20%
Bonus grade for full time attendance: +5%
GRADING SYSTEM

• The assessments will utilize the following types of


questions:
1. Multiple Choice Questions MCQ.
2. Assay questions.

• Answers must be in blue pen.


• Language used in assessments is only English.
QUESTIONS
SIMPLE RULES TO SUCCESS

• The following must be adhered to during the lessons:


1. It is all about time. Be at the class on time at
10:30am of every Thursday of the week.
SIMPLE RULES TO SUCCESS
