DGLR Short Course Aircraft Design, 11.- 14. September 2007, Berlin, Germany


The DGLR Short Course is arranged for graduated engineers, equivalent professionals and/or managers. It is likewise suitable for specialists in search of a broader perspective as for newcomers to the field.



The Short Course gives an insight into the procedures and the multidisciplinary interactions of aircraft conceptual design. The process of iterative synthesis and analysis in aircraft design is illustrated. A software tool for preliminary sizing is demonstrated. Methods and data to enable case studies of subsonic aircraft design are provided.



The Short Course Aircraft Design will cover following topics:

  • Introduction
  • Development Process
  • Requirements
  • Certification Standards
  • Aircraft Configurations
  • Engine Integration
  • Preliminary Sizing
  • Fuselage Design
  • Wing Design (including High Lift)
  • Empennage Design
  • Landing Gear Design and Integration
  • Design Evaluation / DOC
  • Military Aircraft Development



On completion of the Short Course, delegates will

  • know aircraft design parameters and methods
  • know the fundamental relationship of aircraft design parameters
  • be able to size and design an aircraft to the detail as covered during the Short Course
  • have a capability to structure aircraft design activities systematically and efficiently.
