We'll round out the term by applying our knowledge learnt about forces and their vector components to flight. You'll be offered the opportunity to take a short flight in a light aircraft to experience those forces and how they are produced by aircraft, and therefore some of the consideration that goes into aircraft design.

We'll conclude by writing an internal on the theory of flight.

The report is worth 3 credits and the external 6 credits.
