Study Objective:

Obtain basic overview of historical data in development of aircraft technology and its categorisation. Learn drawing philosophies and the role fo aerospace regulations forming them, get aquainted with procedure for stating aerospace construction load and the influence of mass distribution on it, especially with the basic stages of development in designing and developing aircrafts. Understand ways to construct an airframe and understand the construction technologicyl requirements to secure the necessary technology of the construction.

To provide principal survey of layout, geometric, mass and aerodynamic characteristic, loading and constructions of fundamental airframe units ? wing, fuselage, tail unit and landing gear.
