Year One includes an icebreaker group project as well as a team project to design, build and fly a small aircraft. You’ll also study Structures, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Maths, Electronics, Management, Design and Engineering Skills. The Pilot Studies module (based on the PPL ground school syllabus) complements the flight training programme of 20 hours which is mandatory.

In Year Two you will take modules in Aeroengines, Avionics, Computer programming, Maths, Dynamics, Structures, Design, Aircraft Performance and Project Management. The Pilot Studies module is based on the Air Transport Pilot’s Licence (ATPL) ground school syllabus.

In Year Three you will undertake an individual project providing the opportunity to conduct research and develop innovative concepts in their preferred technical area of interest.

You can also take modules in Aerodynamics, Flight dynamics and control, Aerostructures, Aeroengines, Avionics and Management and you can take optional modules in topics such as Spaceflight and Aircraft Design.

An additional fee of approximately £3,400 is required to cover the costs of the mandatory 20 hours pilot training.
