Course detail

Operation and Economy of Air Devices II

FSI-OP2Acad. year: 2020/2021

Subject PELD II is to familiarize students with the impact of air traffic on the economy of aviation technology, a method for direct operational costs, profitability and profit impact of air transport on the environment, air traffic over short distances, mass and mass air transport, supersonic air transport forecasts and perspectives of development of air transport.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will become familiar with the possibilities of the use of aircraft technology, by selecting the renewal and the fleet of aircraft operator expansion , fleet composition and deployment on various tracks surrender. They learn how to organize the operation of aircraft technology, so that the effects on the environment.

Aims

The aim is to introduce to aircraft operation economy as a means of transport , productivity of the aircraft operation and special aerial works, about their impact of noise, emissions and air pollutants on the environment and technological processes in air transport. In all forecasts, students learn about global trends in the development of air transport of passengers and cargo, and their impact on regional development and requirements for technical and technological security of operations.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Lectures and exercises are compulsory, and the attendance (80% at the minimum) is controlled and recorded. The absence (in justifiable cases) can be compensated after personal consultation with the lecturer and elaboration of individually assigned topics and exercises. Individual assignments must be finished and handed in the credit week at the latest.
