This book teaches what is required by EASA for B1 and B2 knowledge testing and typical of the curricula offered within EASA certified 2 year Part 147 programs.
The focus is on a basic understanding of the various conditions of flight and flight controls as applied to the day to day tasks of an aircraft technician.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
PHYSICS OF THE ATMOSPHERE
- International standard atmosphere, application to aerodynamics
- Airflow around a body.
- Boundary layer, laminar and turbulent flow, free stream flow, relative airflow, upwash and downwash, vortices, stagnation.
- Terms: camber, chord, mean aerodynamic chord, profile (parasitic) drag, induced drag, center of pressure, angle of attack, wash-in and wash-out, fineness ration, wing shape, and aspect ratio.
- Thrust, weight, aerodynamic resultants.
- Generation of lift and drag, angle of attack, lift coefficient, polar curve, stall.
- Airfoil contamination including ice, snow, and frost.
THEORY OF FLIGHT
- relationship between lift, weight, thrust, and drag.
- glide ratio.
- steady state flights, performance.
- theory of the turn.
- influence of load factor, stall, flight envelope and structural limitations.
- lift augmentation
FLIGHT STABILITY AND DYNAMICS
- longitudinal, lateral and directional stability (active and passive)
