Fixed Wing Aerodynamics
Purpose: This course is designed to provide the student with an understanding of fixed-wing aerodynamics, with emphasis on aerodynamic principles and aircraft performance. This course will assist the Aviation Safety Officer (ASO) in establishing a mishap prevention program in the squadron, as well as, identify increased risk factors associated with routine flight operation during the ORM process. Additionally, should the need arise; the ASO will be able to perform detailed aerodynamic analysis during the deliberation phase of mishap investigations.
