Aims and Scope


Firstly, The Korean Society for Aviation and Aeronautics (KSAA) aims at conducting research for both the aviation and also aerospace studies. This is mainly due to the fact that the Korean air law deals with aircrafts that fly into the atmosphere. Spacecraft, also flies into the atmosphere and is hence considered as a type of aircraft according to the Korean air law. Therefore, the society seeks theories and scientific studies on occurrences in the atmosphere. These comprises of studies on the atmosphere, meteorology, thermodynamics, hydromechanics and environmental engineering.

Secondly, the KSAA aims at developing pilot training through research on fundamentals of piloting, pilot education and aviation psychology. This purpose shall be achie ved by either theoretical or scientific studies of flight information and procedure, flight navigation theories, ins trumental flight theories, other oper ation related technic improvement and airspace management (flight plan, changes of flight plan and reserved airspace).

Thirdly, the KSAA would also be conducting research on personnel management and facilities. This includes studies on personnel organizations and personnel management such as per sonnel selection, training and qualification, personnel welfare management. In relation to facilities, there will be new knowledge and theories on design of aviation airport, security and additional facilities, methods and management of oper ation through research studies. The studies will be developed by established academic theories, scientific investigation and academic research.
