:shock: Good god, surely thats not all for one occupation. You would
need to be Einstein 10 times over to even look at that lot, never mind
take it all in. :shock:

And I thought school was tough. I just wonder why anyone would
want to put themselves through that type of torture. I mean how
can one person take in all that AND more, AND remember in detail
when required. I suppose there are other occupation's which take
as much dedication as Aircraft Engineers in training. Then have to
keep up to date on all new advance's in the field. I can only thank
god I don't have to go to all that trouble to I order to earn a living.
Of-course it does take total dedication. It's only when I seen the
list and only a short one shown, that my admiration for anyone who
take's that route has just gone up several notches.

well if you see the syllabus its a bit hectic,and the exams throw up a lot of trick nasty questions(especially IAA who ask about stuff thats not used anymore e.g germanium diodes and also give wrong formulas for non-inverting amps),and most of the important stuff goes into big detail(level3),every single little value eg. forward bias voltage of a NPN transistor must be remembered,and thats the easiest(well aerodynamics is)

Why doe's the IAA do that. Do they think that there just might be an aircraft still flying out there with that type of equipment, or are they
just sadist's, who enjoy seeing people squirming under pressure, for
no reasonable reason.

Ya, it does. I take it your fully qualified yourself, so you not worried
about bounce back from them. If that's the case, as I said before
you have my full admiration for the dedication all aircraft engineers/
technician's have to put in, in order to qualify.

I have to make a presentation on some topic of my choice soon for college and I'm going to head down the aerodynamics line. What I need is some decent, mathematical reference material along the lines of this: http://142.26.194.131/aerodynamics1/ so any similar links would be really appreciated if you know of 'em :]

Hello Laura,

Here are a few to keep you busy.

Anderson and Erberhardt ?Understanding Flight?

Aerodynamics for Students

Compressible Aerodynamics Calculator

NASA Glen Research Centre Aerodynamics Index

Professor MS Cramer?s Fluid Mechanics Page

Physics of Flight Revisited

Aerofoil Misconceptions

NASA Aerofoil Simulator

NASA - Bernoulli vs Newton


Dutch Roll,

That?s a fantastic collection of links, well done. They?ll keep me reading all winter.
Perhaps Mark could start a sticky thread to gather all contributed links together, properly annotated and indexed rather like they?ve done on Pprune. We could keep this thread for requests and extraneous comments.

Hey, thank you both! Those sites are excellent, and I'll try and get my hands on that book :]
