Welcome back to the last part of your Independent project. In this module, you will research and apply knowledge about the stability and control of your selected aircraft Cessna 172, before finalizing your work with a concluding presentation. You will submit the entire presentation as a whole finished production. Keep in mind, this is supposed to be an “Instructional Presentation.” So you are telling someone else about the characteristics of your chosen aircraft as if they have never heard of that aircraft before
For your selected project aircraft, create an instructional presentation that details the weight and balance of your selected aircraft.
From the provided resources, find and diagram the allowable center of gravity (CG) range for your aircraft and explain how passenger and/or fuel loading would affect the CG.
Then, compile your entire Cessna 172 aircraft documentation into a presentation format, utilizing a presentation tool of your choice The goal of the presentation is to inform a new owner/operator of your selected aircraft about the specific performance characteristics that you analyzed throughout this project. So, make sure to properly instruct your audience on how the provided data is applicable to the intended flight operations. Once completed, upload your presentation in the designated area. Then, each student individually reviews at least two of the other teams’ presentations and provides commenting and reflection.
Again, the emphasis in this project task is on explaining your methodology as if you attempted to instruct someone unfamiliar with the aerodynamic details and relationships. Therefore, make sure to detail all assumptions, all formulas used, and all steps that were taken.
As previously, you are encouraged to utilize appropriate computational software such as Excel® or MatLab®.
