Flight Training Program at IIT-Kanpur

10 day residential course on “Introduction to Experiments in Flight” is a flying experience and opportunity to observe routines involved in various phases of flight, eg., take-off, climbing, landing, turning, etc. Thirty students along with three faculty member of Aeronautical Engineering attended this course which was conducted in the month of October from 22nd to 31st. During the course the concepts like, modelling the atmosphere, Aerodynamic Forces and moments, aircraft instruments, static and dynamic equilibrium were taught and experiments on weight and centre of gravity, calibration of control surface, drag polar and neutral point were conducted. The manoeuvres like Dutch roll and Phugoid were also experienced in addition with basic flight envelope, yawing and banking.
