Course summary

**Course Overview** - Are you fascinated by aircraft? This course combines the practical and theoretical aspects of flying with the underlying principles of Aerospace Engineering.- Benefit from the practical application of what you learn in the classroom in our full motion simulator.- You’ll undertake Private Pilot License (PPL) theoretical studies in Year 2. Successful completion of this is determined by passing the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Private Pilot’s Licence Examinations.- CAA examinations are an essential component of a PPL. This degree doesn’t include the practical flying components of the PPL (typically 45 hours) but we partner with a flight training school who will offer those for an additional fee.**Why study with us**- You will undertake ‘Private Pilot Licence (PPL)’ theoretical studies in your 2nd year.- There’s an optional 48-week sandwich placement in industry for full-time students between Year 2 and Year 3.- Benefit from our new £35m Engineering Innovation Centre, which includes state-of-the-art software tools and flight simulators.**Further Information**This course provides access to these facilities:- Immersive flight simulators.- Redbird FMX: The FMX’s electric motion platform and wrap-around visual offer fantastic realism. Our FMX can be configured as two different aircraft types, a Cessna C172, and a Piper Seminole PA44-S and is complete with an instructors’ station, and an external monitoring and debriefing station.- Desktop flight simulators.- This equipment takes the advanced flight training tools found on our large simulators and puts them in a multi-screen desktop device. As a student on our aerospace degree courses, you can use these simulators to reinforce your understanding of aircraft flight dynamics and they can be rapidly reconfigured to a wide range of different aircraft types, from civil aircraft, helicopters and even the Space Shuttle!- Composites (GRP Bodywork) workshop.- The composites workshop is used for a variety of activities from research on resin infusion to the development of F3 hovercraft. We also intend to use this for airframe manufacture. - This course has been designed to comply with the educational requirements published by the UK Engineering Council.
