Prerequisite
AIRCRAFT CONCEPTUAL DESIGN, ENGINEERING GRAPHICSApplications of engineering drawing instruments.
Rationale
As aeronautical industries are growing fast across the world because of needs of military and civil aviation applications. A student should be proficient enough to design aircraft and aircraft’s components with structural and aerodynamic considerations.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Make a layout and lofting of fuselage, wing and tail plane configuration after getting dimensions.
2. Choose an engine of particular aircraft design and locate them in the aircraft designs.
3. Design landing gear/ undercarriage and locate them with retraction geometry.
4. Design Crew station, Passenger compartment, Cargo provisions, Weapons carriage bay, Gun installation etc.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should be submitted to GTU
1. Public/Cargo Transport jet plane ( Medium range or Long Range Jet Airliner)
2. Single engine – Home built. (Metal/Wood/Composite)
3. Twin engine – Home built.
4. Single engine piston prop-personal utility aircraft
5. Twin engine piston prop-personal utility aircraft
6. Twin engine turbo prop-personal utility/ Public/Cargo Transport aircraft
7. Powered Sailplane
8. Unpowered Sailplane (Glider)
9. Jet trainer
10. Jet fighter ( Multirole, Interceptor, Dog fighter, Patrolling, Ground attack, Deep Penetration Strike etc)
11. Unmanned Ariel Vehicle
12. Aerobatic Sports Plane ( Single Engine Piston Prop)
13. Aerobatic Utility/Aerobatic Biplane ( Single Engine Piston Prop)
14. Ultralight / Microlight Aircraft
15. Radio Control (RC) Plane. ( Single Engine, Piston Prop)
16. Radio Control (RC) Plane. ( Single Engine, Jet)
17. Radio Control (RC) Sail Plane ( Powered and Unpowered)
18. Or any other type of fix or variable sweep wing aircraft
