Introduction Performance Performance analysis is a direct process and in general there is a unique solution. Example of questions in performance analysis are: How fast/slow and high/low can the aircraft fly? How rapidly can the aircraft climb? How far can the aircraft fly? How long can the aircraft remain in the air? How quickly and in what distance can the aircraft turn? What distance is required for takeoff and landing? What happens if the engine fails? Answers to these questions depend on the aircraft’s design. Design Design is an indirect or inverse process and has many acceptable solutions. This process has a potential for optimization and engineering excellence.
