CASR-66 Module 8 Basic Aerodynamics

Share this course on your social media page

Study for a career in aircraft maintenance or advance your existing aircraft maintenance career with a B1 or B2 Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (LAME) license. SM TAFE offers modules to suit the B1 LAME license, focusing on maintenance of Airframes (A), Engines (C) and Electrical (E) systems; and the B2 LAME license, focusing on Electrical (E), Instrument (I) and Radio (R) systems. 

Study flexibly in a CASA approved training facility at Jandakot’s Aviation campus that includes a hangar housing a variety of training aeroplanes, engines and equipment including a Boeing B737-200.  Our classrooms, computer labs and online systems will complement module training that is designed in-house by experienced lecturers in collaboration with industry. Progress your journey by attempting required CASA examinations with us. 

CASA Part 66 Module 8 builds upon basic physics knowledge, extending knowledge into knowledge of atmospheric physics using the International Standard Atmosphere (ISA), application to aerodynamics.

Acquire this knowledge

  • Concepts including airflow, camber, chord, drag types, pressure, angle of attack, wish in and out, wing shape and aspect ratio, thrust, lift, polar curve and stall
  • Flight theory relationships between lift, weight, thrust and drag 
  • Flight stability and dynamics including turning theory, performance and gliding; longitudinal, lateral and directional stability

Sit the exam only

If  you are someone who is already in the industry and would like to follow a “self-study” and examinations pathway, express your interest to find out available examination dates.
