Aerospace Program at Polk State College
The Aerospace program utilizes a state-of-the-art approach to training that allows our students from all aerospace degree paths to share knowledge and experience in a blended learning environment, a learning environment modeled around the actual operations of the modern aerospace industry, not merely modeled around a textbook. Our program relies on the guiding principles of the Safety Management System (SMS) concept, now an industry standard for all professional aviation operations. Building our training program around solid flight safety data, we are able to graduate professional pilots and aerospace administrators who not only fly and manage airplanes, but also fly and manage them safely.

Morphing Aerospace Vehicles and Structures by
Publication Date: 2012-02-07
Morphing Aerospace Vehicles and Structures provides a highly timely presentation of the state-of-the-art, future directions and technical requirements of morphing aircraft. Divided into three sections it addresses morphing aircraft, bio-inspiration, and smart structures with specific focus on the flight control, aerodynamics, bio-mechanics, materials, and structures of these vehicles as well as power requirements and the use of advanced piezo materials and smart actuators. The tutorial approach adopted by the contributors, including underlying concepts and mathematical formulations, unifies the methodologies and tools required to provide practicing engineers and applied researchers with the insight to synthesize morphing air vehicles and morphing structures, as well as offering direction for future research.
Aerospace Marketing Management by
Publication Date: 2013-11-25
This book presents an overall picture of both B2B and B2C marketing strategies, concepts and tools, in the aeronautics sector. This is a significant update to an earlier book successfully published in the nineties which was released in Europe, China, and the USA. It addresses the most recent trends such as Social Marketing and the internet, Customer Orientation, Project Marketing and Con current Engineering, Coopetition, and Extended Enterprise. Aerospace Marketing Management is the first marketing handbook richly illustrated with executive and expert inputs as well as examples from parts suppliers, aircraft builders, airlines, helicopter manufacturers, aeronautics service providers, airports, defence and military companies, and industrial integrators (tier-1, tier-2). This book is designed as a ready reference for professionals and graduates from both Engineering and Business Schools.
