Aviation - Secondary, Physics & Aerodynamics
Students will use the principles of simple machines, sound, fluid, and heat dynamics. The relationship between pressure, volume and temperature of air masses and liquid will be covered. The student will study basic areodynamics and the effect of atmospheric temperature, humidity, pressures and forceson aircraft airfoil surfaces.

-Use and understand the principles of simple physics inregard to aircraft structures and theory of flight

-understand and use basic areodynamics

-understand and use heat dynamics

Written and practical evaluations will be performed at the Part 147 AMTS. Upon successful completion of the AMTS requirements, students will have the opportunity to test with the FAA for licensure certification.

This course aligns with FAA Part 147 certified Aviation Maintenance Technician School (AMTS) curriculum requirements. Teaching of this course by any entity other than a FAA 147 certified AMTS does not constitute FAA certification. Furthermore, each AMTS must have its curriculum approved by the FAA in its entirety, identifying the hours of instruction, order of instruction, subjects prescribed by Part 147, practical application projects, scheduling of tests, grading criteria, and makeup provisions.
