Course Information
Trade & Industrial Education
Performance and Navigation
In this course, students will learn to predict the performance (capabilities and limitations) of an airplane. Predicting performance is extremely important because it has to do with speed, maneuverability, load-carrying capacity, etc. For example, how much runway is needed for takeoff; how fast can the plane reach a certain altitude; how long will it take to reach your destination; how much fuel is needed; and what length runway will be sufficient for landing are some of the performance questions that students must be able to calculate. They will also learn the basics of flight planning and navigation using aeronautical charts, visual landmarks, and radio aids.
