Teaching Methods

The teaching methodology includes lectures with the use of the blackboard and occasionally powerpoint presentations and exercises.
The arguments and mathematical formulas are constructed step by step.
For the practical part, the Matlab suite will be used.

Textbooks

Etkin, Bernard. Dynamics of atmospheric flight. Courier Corporation, 2012.

Learning assessment

The exam is oral. It is expected the verification of a paper (flight simulator) to be presented during the exam.
