There are 4 modules in this course

This first week is dedicated to the atmosphere that surrounds the airplane and allows it to fly, and to the basis of flight physics. We will focus on the environment in which the airplane evolves: the atmosphere. We will examine its physics to better understand the effect of altitude on pressure, temperature, or the speed of sound.
