3. Flight at high altitude

Session 1: Flight at high altitude

Objective1: Emphasise critical aspect of high altitude cruise flight: very low pressure and temperature

Objective2: Show to students how passenger and crew life can be assured in an high altitude flight

Objective3: Give examples of some critical condition and  how they are managed


Session 2: How works a pressurized fuselage

Objective: Explain that a fuselage of an airplane designed to fly at high altitude, besides other loads has to withstand  a differential pressure between the external (atmosphere static) pressure and  the internal thermodynamic pressure.


Session 3: Ice Problems

Objective 1: Explain problems and solutions in case of ice conditions
Objective 2: Give an insight in the today applied research on  ice problems  in aeronautical field
