Flight Mechanics

Flight is the process by which an object moves through an atmosphere (or beyond it, as in the case of space flight) without contact with the surface. This can be achieved by generating aerodynamics lift  associated with propulsive thrust, aeroelasticity using buoncy or by ballistics movement. Flight Mechanics is the branch of engineering that studies the motion of aerospace vehicles in flight when acted upon by gravitational, aerodynamic, propulsive, and other external forces.
