ENM1401 Theory of Energy Management

Many of the winged spacecraft under development today are designed to land unpowered or with extremely limited fuel. This requires the pilot to have an innate understanding of energy management and how weather and vehicle conditions affect it.

This course is designed to be an

introduction to winged Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) energy management. During this course the Pilot Under Instruction (PUI) will become proficient with energy management techniques and procedures utilizing the control performance method of aircraft control per 14 CFR Part 460.5(c) 2-4.

The PUI is taught Energy management theory, as applied to an RLV, in a classroom setting utilizing various training aides and then PUIs apply the theory to real life scenarios in a training device which simulates RLV flight characteristics.
