Dan Raymer's 2017 Aircraft & Spacecraft Conceptual Design Short Courses


Dan Raymer here. I'll be personally presenting my aerospace vehicle design short courses this January here in Los Angeles, near LAX and the LA tourist destinations.

These classes provide a fun and intensive introduction to new aerospace vehicle concept development. They also provide a broad overview of aerospace engineering from structure to aerodynamics to propulsion and more.

See the links below for details and comments from the many people who've already taken the classes.

Hope you can make it to one or more.

- Aircraft Conceptual Design Short Course (Jan. 23-27)

- Aircraft Configuration Layout, Loft, & CAD (Jan 28)

- Spacecraft & Launch Vehicle Design (Jan 30 - Feb 1)

Seats are limited so please contact me if you are interested. Kindly route this around to others who might be interested. I do my own marketing and I need all the help I can get!

Thanks and Best Regards,

    Daniel P. Raymer, Ph.D.
    President, Conceptual Research Corp.

Dan Raymer is President of the design and consulting company, Conceptual Research Corporation. Recipient of the prestigious AIAA Aircraft Design Award, he is a recognized expert in the areas of Aerospace Vehicle Design and Configuration Layout, Computer-aided Design Methodologies and Design Education. During his 10 years in the Advanced Design Department of Rockwell (North American Aviation) he conceived and did the layout design of Rockwell's entries in what became the F-22, B-2, and T-45 programs, and was Head of Air Vehicle Design for X-31 from "blank sheet of paper" (CAD screen) to the configuration that flew (with minor fabrication-driven changes).

His industry career includes positions as Director-Advanced Design with Lockheed, Director-Future Missions at the Aerojet Propulsion Research Institute, and Project Manager-Engineering at Rockwell North American Aviation. He also served as a research engineer and aerospace design consultant at the famous RAND Corporation think tank.

Dr. Raymer is the author of the best-selling textbook "Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach" and the well-regarded layman's book, "Dan Raymer's Simplified Aircraft Design for Homebuilders". His newest book, "Living In The Future: The Education and Adventures of an Advanced Aircraft Designer", covers his career and his design projects including most of those described below. Raymer has received both Rockwell Engineer of the Year and the AIAA Summerfield Book awards, and was recently made a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Dr. Raymer received B.S. and M.S. engineering degrees in Astronautics and Aeronautics from Purdue, an MBA from the University of Southern California, and a Doctorate of Engineering (Ph.D.) from the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH).
