About the Course

This course is dedicated to energy management, i.e. speed and altitude control. The various sources of drag are first described and modeled, as well as thrust origin, and evolution with speed and altitude. Using these models, we can evaluate the propulsive balance and derive important concepts like flight regimes, best climb speed, or propulsion ceiling. We take then a glance at cruise performances and the evolution of range with weight. This course is a part of the specialization "Fundamentals of Flight mechanics"....

It was quite a challenging course but not impossible to complete even for people who didn't have a scientific background ( like me)!

Persistence, work management, self study can get you far in this module. Do not jump right away on this if you didn't complete the previous ones because it could get confusing.

The videos are short but well explained.

Really great explanation, compact yet easy to understand modules, logical quizes, practical examples, informative videos with just the right amount of humour, real life executions in flight, just an overall excellent course for people interested in Aerospace, Aviation and Flight Mechanics!

Last part of the specialization. The chapter on Payload range is very interesting. Great job!

Very good course, the final assessment is quite challenging so you need to learn seriously.
