Aerospace & Aviation

What is aerospace?

The word aerospace is essentially a combination of two words: aeronautics and spaceflight. Therefore, aerospace deals with the design, manufacturing, and maintenance of aircrafts or spacecrafts and can be thought of as the science of flight within Earth’s atmosphere as well as outside it.  Aerospace is the engineering and science of flying in Earth’s atmosphere and outer space. It is the space comprising the Earth’s atmosphere and the space beyond.

What is aviation?

​Aviation, on the other hand, means flying of aircraft or operating a plane. It is all things aircraft-related within the atmosphere of Earth. Aviation is focused on aircraft operation and maintenance, the design of commercial or military aircraft and the management of air traffic. Aerospace is a high technology industry that includes aircraft and parts used for civil aviation and military aviation.

An aerospace and aviation workshop are a place where people can learn about the design, construction, and maintenance of aircraft and spacecraft. Workshops can cover a wide range of topics, from basic aerodynamics to advanced propulsion systems and materials science. They can be geared towards students, hobbyists, or professionals in the aerospace industry.

The aerospace industry is a high-tech sector that deals with the research, design, manufacture, and maintenance of both aircraft and also spacecraft. There are also a broad range of services that can be thought of as part of the aerospace industry, and those are aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul as well as satellite services within the space sector. As one of the global economy’s largest and most important industries, it is broken up into smaller sectors, which deal with military aircraft, commercial airliners, space, missiles, and aviation.

 

Aviation is also a very important industry to the global economy and, as we established above, generally deals with the design, manufacture, operation and repair of aircraft used to fly within Earth’s atmosphere. Aviation is divided into four smaller sectors, namely airports, airlines, the aircraft industry, and aviation institutions.
