Learn the tools used by flight test professionals

Daedalus Aerospace provides training and tools for flight test and aerospace professionals, with on-demand courses in flight test planning/execution and risk management. Our courses communicate the same concepts that are currently taught at leading test pilot schools, but few have opportunity to attend - let alone can afford the time and cost. 

Whether you are working on evolutionary or revolutionary ideas, you need proven methods for successful aerospace product development. These processes contributed to engineering the aircraft and satellites of today, and are equally useful for emergent concepts such as airborne autonomy, electric propulsion, hypersonic flight, urban air mobility, and drone delivery. 

Daedalus Aerospace courses provide essential training for aerospace product teams.


  • Asynchronous, On-Demand Learning

    Self-paced instruction to mesh with your schedule. Pause or replay, while still able to engage with questions and dialog. Ideal on-the-job training for professionals already onboard with a product team.

  • Real-World Expertise

    Learn from experienced practitioners that have already planned, flown, and analyzed many high risk test missions. Get both the theory and application.

  • Competence and Confidence

    Applicable content for established manufacturers and aerospace startups. Benefit from flight test lessons-learned, and avoid recursive design delays or costly disasters.

Delivering flight test education to aerospace leaders


  • What is the value-added of Daedalus Aerospace principles to aerospace development?

    Daedalus Aerospace courses provide best practices, lessons learned, and professional strategies for flight test. Our course content is closely aligned with and based on the flight test methods used by the US Air Force, US Navy, NASA, FAA Aircraft Certification, and many other professional flight test operations. These proven best practices improve safety, data security, effectiveness, and efficiency.

  • How much can Daedalus Aerospace principles save my team?

    Although it's not possible to prove the "accident that never occurred", analysis of recent aerospace programs shows that product teams and businesses using professional flight test methods are over twice as likely to result in a successful product, and deliver their product to users in one third the time, compared to competing product teams.

  • Should anyone think about flight test before there is a finished product to test?

    Absolutely. Flight test adds value long before the prototype vehicle is built, since it incorporates system engineering and risk management principles that prevent redesign, rework, and regret. Reinventing wheels takes a lot of time. Teams that include the flight test perspective are more efficient, with a better track record for success.

  • Who teaches Daedalus Aerospace courses?

    Daedalus Aerospace courses are taught by career flight test professionals, including graduates and former on-staff instructors from the US Air Force Test Pilot School.

  • What about development of space systems, or working with assets already on orbit?

    Flight test principles are proven to significantly improve the effectiveness and efficiency of development for space systems. These benefits include space systems undergoing test prior to launch, as well as structuring validation and operational tests for on-orbit deployed systems.
