Click here for the course description and outline. Seats are limited so reserve today!

Dan Raymer's popular 5-day Aircraft Design Short Course covers the whole field of aircraft design from definition of requirements and initial layout, to analysis, optimization, and trade studies. The class serves both as an overview introduction to the aircraft development process and as a practical "how-to" for those working in design. Come find out why this class gets such high participant evaluations, and why so many are there on the recommendation of a boss or coworker who previously took the class. For more details and a course outline, click here.


The class will be conducted from 8:00am to about 5pm each day. Participants will receive a full set of bound Lecture Notes, a copy of Dr. Raymer's best-selling textbook, "Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach,", and a signed completion certificate suitable for framing.


The class is being presented at the Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach Hotel, 15 minutes from LAX and in the heart of the South Bay beach tourist area overlooking the Pacific Ocean and King Harbor Marina. The hotel features a gourmet restaurant, swimming pool, European Day Spa, Gold's Gym, bike rentals, and a shuttle bus to the airport. You can walk to over 15 ocean front or ocean view dining spots, take a shuttle to area shopping malls, or even book a sailboat or a whale-watching cruise! Popular tourist attractions such as Hollywood, Venice Beach, the Queen Mary, and Disneyland are nearby.

To stay at the Crowne Plaza, book online or call 888-233-9527. A limited number of rooms at a reduced rate are being held until one month before. Mention 'Aircraft Conceptual Design.'
