Fundamentals of Flight mechanics Specialization
Get hands-on understanding of Flight mechanics. Apply it to the critical review of a flight accident report, or to the set up of a flight test program, or for drafting the preliminary design of an airplane.
What you will learn
How Mach number can impact stall speed.
Why turboprops consume less than turbojets.
What exactly mean indications given by flight instruments (i.e. anemometer, altimeter).
Use precise and appropriate words to describe an airplane and its motion in the air.

About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
In each course, learners are invited to complete exercises in the form of case studies to put into practice the skills they have learned. These exercises are built around simulators allowing the manipulation of variables defined by the learner himself.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
There are 4 Courses in this Specialization
Flight mechanics - The basis
Flight Mechanics - Anemobarometry
Flight mechanics - Lift and trajectory
