ADVANCED SHORT COURSE IN AIRCRAFT
CONFIGURATION LAYOUT, LOFT, & CAD
18 Sept, 2021, Los Angeles, CA, in Redondo Beach at the beautiful
Sonesta Hotel Redondo Beach (previously Crowne Plaza) overlooking
the marina, beach, bikepath, shops, and the famous King Harbor pier.
Click here for the course description and outline. Seats are limited so reserve today!
This is a special one-day version of Dan Raymer's amazingly-useful class in
Aircraft Configuration Design Layout, Loft, & CAD, and is intended as an advanced follow-on
for the popular 5-day Aircraft Design Short Course.
Developed for those who, like Raymer, actually work in new aircraft configuration layout, this class
provides an expert's insight into the subject covering topics such as
fuselage layout for minimum drag and cost, wing layout for optimal aerodynamics, and the classical
lofting methods upon which current practice is based. The class also discusses modern computerized lofting mathematics
as used in Computer-Aided Design systems, and
includes advice on the best way to use CAD for aircraft concept design.
The class is shortened by removing background material
and duplication with Raymer's 5-day design class, so this 1-day version is only recommended for those who have taken that
class already or are already broadly familiar with such methods. Feel free to take both classes - many do!

Sorry, no AIAA or SAE discounts apply.
If your organization's payment procedures require additional effort by CRC to obtain payment, such as reviewing and signing
a Purchase Order and/or registering in your financial payment system, a $400 processing fee must be added.
[The usual Cancellation Policy below is waived due to the Covid situation and the fact that payments aren't being requested until 4-6 weeks before the class. But please, don't sign up unless you are 95% certain to attend!]
Cancellations must be emailed no later than 32 days before the start of the course
and are subject to a $100 cancellation fee plus deduction for non-recoverable PayPal fees. Conceptual Research Corporation reserves the right to cancel any class up to 31 days before the scheduled start date and accepts no liability for
expenses incurred due to that cancellation, including but not limited to
purchase of non-refundable airline tickets. In this unlikely event, those registered will be
notified immediately and a full refund will be issued. Should a severe medical or personal emergency
prevent Dr. Raymer from personally conducting all or part of this short course, it will be cancelled if determined prior to 31 days before the scheduled start date or if after, a highly-qualified substitute lecturer will present Dr. Raymer's material. This has never happened and it isn't expected to happen this time!
