Courses & Events

Participants receive an introduction to systems engineering fundamentals as applied to aerospace systems with emphasis on manned aircraft, both commercial and military. The course is based on evolving systems engineering standards, the current versions of the INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook (the Systems Engineering Book of Knowledge), and the EIA/IS 632, IEEE P1220 and INCOSE papers.


October 18-22, 2021, B Resort Hotel Orlando (Orlando, FL)
This course provides a fundamental review of transport airplane regulatory requirements and compliance-finding methodologies associated with cabin safety and crashworthiness regulations on aircraft cabin interior configurations. The course also reviews FAA/EASA criteria to determine the certification bases of Type Certification and Supplemental Type Certification projects.


October 18-22, 2021, B Resort Hotel Orlando (Orlando, FL)
This course reviews fundamental design considerations for the certification of propulsion systems. It discusses design requirements, methods of compliance, tests and analyses to demonstrate compliance to civil and military certification requirements. Using practical examples, participants will gain knowledge to support their role as propulsion engineers.


October 18-22, 2021, B Resort Hotel Orlando (Orlando, FL)
This course discusses the concepts of aircraft ground and flight testing that may be required to ensure that aircraft level systems are safe for operation when exposed to the effects of electromagnetic effects (EME), high intensity radiated fields (HIRF), lightning, precipitation static (P-static), and transmitting personal electronic devices (TPEDs).


October 18-22, 2021, B Resort Hotel Orlando (Orlando, FL)
Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are comprised of an unmanned vehicle (UAV), a manned control element(s), and various data and control links. Although unmanned, the vehicle is still an aircraft and must be tested with the same rigor and precision as manned systems. However, being "unmanned" and being part of an integrated system, UAVs demand unique flight test approaches that present corresponding challenges.


October 18-20, 2021, B Resort Hotel Orlando (Orlando, FL)
This course will present key aspects of vertical flight and rotorcraft challenges through a review of their historical evolution, basic principles and enabling technologies. It will cover the fundamental principles underlying rotorcraft flight, flight performance, rotor limitations, configurations and conceptual design. Emphasis is placed on relating rotorcraft aerodynamics to airplane aerodynamics for those making the transition.


October 18-21, 2021, B Resort Hotel Orlando (Orlando, FL)
This course provides an overview of airplane performance theory and prediction, certification standards and basic flight test practices. The course will focus on turbojet/turbofan powered aircraft certified under JAR/CAR/14 CFR Part 25. This standard will briefly be compared to military and Part 23 standards to show different approaches to safety, certification, operational and design differences.
