Held in conjunction with the AIAA Guidance, Navigation, and Control Conference and the AIAA Modeling and Simulation Technologies Conference, the AIAA Atmospheric Flight Mechanics Conference provides a forum for presentation and discussion of all technical areas related to atmospheric flight. On an international level, it brings together the experts from industry, government, and academia. The presentation of over 100 technical papers from several countries provides a view of the newest developments in flight mechanics and benefits the global development process. The technical sessions cover the topics of flight mechanics, aircraft dynamics and control, unsteady and high angle-of-attack aerodynamics, flying qualities, flight test techniques, system identification, projectile and missile dynamics, uninhabited aerial vehicles, reusable launch vehicles, reentry and aeroassist vehicles, and atmospheric flight mechanics education.
This year includes a special session on Aerodynamic Decelerator Systems as well as a Best AFM Student Paper Competition, with paper selection and award presentation occurring at the conference. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers’ first successful powered flight, the Atmospheric Flight Mechanics Technical Committee is proud to present two sessions of invited speakers presenting topics on the History of Flying Qualities and History of Atmospheric Flight Mechanics.
