      FlexFuture is looking for student support


      The department and DLR are developing and designing a highly flexible aircraft in a joint research project. Student support is needed for the project. Possible opportunities include writing a thesis and/or doing an internship at DLR. Details can be found in this presentation. For further questions please contact:

      EuroGNC 2021 - Call for Papers


      The Department of Flight Mechanics, Flight Control and Aeroelasticity and the Department of Flight Guidance and Air Transport are organizing the EuroGNC 2021 together with the DGLR. The Call for Papers is open. Please visit the website at: https://eurognc2021.dglr.de 

      The department joined SCADE Academic Program

      The Department Flight Mechanics, Flight Control and Aeroelasticity of the Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics has joined the ANSYS® SCADE Academic Partnership program of ANSYS in January  2020. The SCADE Suite® is an environment for the model-based development of safety critical software for embedded systems. SCADE Suite® tools are used at the department in education and research for the development of flight control functions.
