Flight Dynamics & Performance

At the core of AVT's capability is a deep understanding of flight dynamic theory and practice; gained through decades of experience in the modelling, design, analysis, simulation and test of manoeuvring air vehicles.

Flight Data Analysis

 

We can analyse vehicles and their external interactions using a range of techniques; where necessary from first principles. Indeed, many of our projects have required venturing far off the well-worn track of standard texts. However, we do so to provide useful answers to real questions, and practical, innovative solutions to real needs.

Our work to date has concentrated on air vehicles, both fixed and rotary wing, manned and unmanned. However, we also have an interest in underwater flight vehicles, such as submarines and ROV/AUVs. Here, our dynamics and control skills are strongly supported by our in-house hydrodynamic modelling capability.
