In the field of aeronautical dynamics, this book offers readers adesign tool which enables them to solve the different problems thatcan occur during the planning stage of a private project. Theauthors present a system for the modeling, design and calculationof the flying qualities of airplanes and drones, with a completemathematical model by Matlab/Simulink. As such, this book may beuseful for design engineers as well as for keen airplaneamateurs.
The authors expound the various phases involved in the designprocess of an airplane, starting with the formulation of a designtool, under the form of a 0D mathematical model (dimensionless,time dependent), before moving on to explore the behavior of theairplane under certain circumstances and offering insights into theoptimization of airplane flying qualities. As validation of thismodel, they present a numerical result, drawn from data collectedon an existing plane – the Concorde.
The dimensional process is then explored and applied to a realisticdrone project. Recommendations on the development of the principalcharacteristics of the plane (i.e. mass distribution, air load,wing span) are given.


1. 0D Analytical Modeling of theAirplane Motions.
2. Design and Optimizationof an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(UAV).
3. Organization of the Auto-Pilot.

This book provides a description of the modeling, design, andcalculation of the aeronautical qualities of airplanes and drones.Divided into several parts, this book first summarizes all thenecessary theoretical developments about the equations of motionsand trajectory calculations of the machine. It then goes on todescribe practical building processes and considers pilotingmethods. The last part makes a comparison between theoreticalcalculations and measured recorded data of the real flyingmachine.
Accompanied by a complete mathematical model in MATLAB/SIMULINK
