AERODYNAMIC PERFORMACE Performance is a study to see if the aircraft meets all the requirements. Level Flight (Is there enough thrust and/or power?) Climb Performance (Will it meet the requirement that the aircraft can gain altitude at a required rate given in feet/sec?) Range (How far can it fly without refueling?) Takeoff and Landing Requirements Others… (e.g. Turn radius, Maneuverability…) You will learn to evaluate aircraft performance in AE 3310. Performance engineers are hired by airlines, buyers, and aircraft companies.
