Did you ever wonder how an aircraft fly? How can a 500-tons aero structure just fly in the air like a bird? One answer stands in the use of engines and this is the talking point of this course.



-- Suitable for Everyone --
First of all, I have designed this course in a way that everyone can attend. It is equation-free so there is no mathematical pre-requirement! Whether you are an engineering student interested in aerospace or a curious person, you will have the exact same opportunity to learn from this course.


-- Understand How Aircraft Fly --

I will start the course with an explanation of basic but required, parameters to follow the course content. We will then see the different engines that can be used and compare them before diving into one as an air particle would do. With this approach, you will understand the operation of each engine component and how this machinery makes the aircraft fly.


-- Available Everywhere at Any Time --

Even though all the content can be seen from a computer, a tablet or a smartphone, I would recommend you to attend this course on a widescreen so you can have a better overview of the materials discussed.


-- Enrol In the Complete Course --

In this course, I will guide you with everything you need to know to understand how aircraft fly in less than an hour. You will be able to get a gentle introduction to aerospace engineering to then to continue in this field, answer the questions you had when you were in an aeroplane to go on the other side of the globe and tan on a turquoise lagoon or just amaze your friends!
