01 - Aviation Technology

01 Aerodynamics Flight characteristics and problems of full-scale or model aircraft and their components as they are affected by the dynamics of air; Flight testing and wind tunnel testing. Includes theoretical and experimental aerodynamics as applied to missiles, See 16/02/01, Guided Missile Dynamics, Configurations and Control Surfaces. For the behavior of spacecraft in air, see 22/03, Spacecraft Trajectories and Reentry. For the aerodynamics of ground structures, see 13/13, Structural Engineering and Building Technology.
02 Military Aircraft Operations Military aircraft operations such as takeoff Operations and landing, air traffic, all weather and night flight, taxiing, approach, and inflight refueling; Flight safety; Ground safety; Aviation accident studies; Aircraft simulators and training devices. For missile operations, see Field 16, Guided Missile Technology. For spacecraft operations, See Field 22, Space Technology. For navigation and air traffic control, see 17/07/03, Air Navigation and Guidance.
