Aerodynamics is the study of forces and the resulting motion of objects through the air. Judging from the story of Daedalus and Icarus, humans have been interested in aerodynamics and flying for thousands of years, although flying in a heavier-than-air machine has been possible only in the last hundred years. However, the pilot of today must have a greater technical knowledge and understanding than the pilot of even 15 years ago, with todays multimillion-dollar, highly complex aircraft with many more systems and aerodynamic problems than their predecessors. To operate todays aircraft, a pilot must have more than just a basic knowledge of principles of flight.
