Notes for students

  • For undergraduate modules, a score above 40% represent a pass performance at honours level.
  • For postgraduate modules, a score of 50% or above represents a pass mark.
  • Late submission of any item of coursework for each day or part thereof (or for hard copy submission only, working day or part thereof) for up to five days after the published deadline, coursework relating to modules at Levels 0, 4, 5, 6 submitted late (including deferred coursework, but with the exception of referred coursework), will have the numeric grade reduced by 10 grade points until or unless the numeric grade reaches or is 40. Where the numeric grade awarded for the assessment is less than 40, no lateness penalty will be applied.
  • Late submission of referred coursework will automatically be awarded a grade of zero (0).
  • Coursework (including deferred coursework) submitted later than five days (five working days in the case of hard copy submission) after the published deadline will be awarded a grade of zero (0).
  • Regulations governing assessment offences including Plagiarism and Collusion are available from https://www.herts.ac.uk/about-us/governance/university-policies-and-regulations-uprs/uprs (please refer to UPR AS14)
  • Guidance on avoiding plagiarism can be found here: https://herts.instructure.com/courses/61421/pages/referencing-avoiding- plagiarism?module_item_id=779436

Assignment Briefing Sheet (2021/22 Academic Year)

This Assignment assesses the following module Intended Learning Outcomes (from Definitive Module Document): Demonstrate understanding of the various modes of motion, principles of flight, performance characteristics and handling qualities from a pilots perspective Be able to measure and evaluate critically the performance characteristics of an aircraft from flight data
Assignment Brief: Using flight-simulation software (X-plane, Merlin, Desktop controls, Microsoft FS) undertake a flight test exercise of a Cessna 172.

Submit a formal lab report investigating the following: Flight-test analysis of the following manoeuvres, critically analysing what is happening to the aircraft. Flying at best-glide speed, no flaps deployed and power at idle, representing a practice forced landing Full-power climb at 70 knots and one stage of flap, representing climb-out Spiral dive (NOT a spin) Stall at 1500rpm engine speed and no flaps deployed You must provide evidence of your own recorded data. Your personal accuracy of flight is not an assessment factor; however, practicing to improve your skill will undoubtedly provide more accurate and relevant data, and where your flight is not a typical one you should repeat it until it is. The minimum data you will need to record are: times, speeds, distances, altitude, thrust, deflections of all control surfaces. The report should include background theory which discusses the various environmental and physical factors that affect aircraft performance. Refer to section 4 of the 172 POH for speeds and section 5 for performance tables (or equivalent if using another aircraft). When producing graphs, be sure to consider all relevant parameters, and choose the most significant combinations to compare. For instance, plotting roll angle during a stall is relevant because it identifies whether a wing drops; plotting lift versus angle of attack isn’t very useful because it will simply reproduce the lift curve for the aircraft’s wing section. Choose very carefully what parameters to plot against each other – in many cases, plotting a parameter against time will be best, but not always. Where you plot multiple graphs (which will be the case for most conditions), show the graphs at a reasonable size, consider carefully what scaling and range to use (don’t plot the entire flight or the relevant part will be almost invisible), and use the same time range for all graphs (where relevant) so that multiple parameters can be compared easily.
Submission Requirements: The report should be submitted as a PDF document via StudyNet. This will be marked anonymously so do not put your name on your work, SRN only. The report must not exceed 12 pages in total, including cover page, contents and appendices / attachments.
