Department of Airplane and Helicopter Designing

Major subject : Airplanes and Helicopters
Direction : Aviation and Cosmonautics

Aviation engineering courses involve designing, developing and assembling of airplanes and helicopters. Innovative ways for the same are also thought of and implemented in Kharkiv Aviation Institute, the renowned Institute of aviation engineering and technology. We provide the best quality education in aviation engineering. Here students study about Radar cross-section, fluid mechanics, Astro-dynamics etc. and so many more subjects to make a difference in the sector.

Brief annotation of the major subject :

Students study general arrangement and structure of airplanes and helicopters of various civil and military purposes as well as their main assembly units: wings, fuselages, empennage, landing gear. They study purposes, principles of operation, structures of various systems, and airplane and helicopter equipment: control systems (principal and auxiliary); life-support and survival systems, fuel systems, etc. They study structure and principles of main integral parts of power plants equipment with various types of engines.

They study main principles and rules of engineering and designing of both airplanes and helicopters in general (general designing) as well as their separate assembly units: wings, empennage, landing gear. They study engineering and designing of separate assembly units and components of aircraft structures: trailing-edge flaps, leading-edge flaps, control surfaces, spars, ribs, panels, ring units, engine mounting systems, etc.

The engineering and designing problems are studied with a wide application of integrated computer technologies CAD/CAM/CAE in UNIGRAPHICS, ADEM, COMPAS systems.
