Aviation and aeronautics. Often you see these two terms used interchangeably. But they are both actually different. Let’s find out the difference.
What is aeronautics?
Aeronautics is the discipline which deals with creating, constructing and working of the aircraft. It is also interesting to note that aeronautics covers more than just airplanes, helicopters and fighter jets, it also includes the making of missiles that are launched in space and unmanned aircrafts, such as drones.
In fact, the aerodynamic principles that you learn about in aeronautics can also be applied to other vehicles, such as cars, boats, and bullet trains, to improve their design and maximize their fuel efficiency.
In short, this field covers all the domains involved in the working of an airplane — the aerodynamics, propulsion, stability and operation, and its basic structure.
What is aviation?
Aviation is simply flying and all the operations involved in it. It includes sub-divisions of air travel industry, military aviation and cargo delivery. As the aviation industry covers the whole business of flying, it also covers laws and environmental concerns that govern air travel. It is a commercial side of aeronautics, a field wholly and solely dedicated to bringing air transport to the masses.
Aeronautics vs. aviation
Aeronautics is the base science. In other words, it is the theoretical basis of the discipline — a solid theoretical and conceptual basis of flying objects that allows expert practitioners to create and improve upon the designs and working of aircrafts.
Aviation, on the other hand, is the wide-scale, industrial application of aeronautics.
The future of the aviation industry
If you are having an exotic meal this week, high chances are that its ingredients were imported from different parts of the world thanks to the development in aviation. This industry is highly profitable for various reasons, and starting a career in aviation is a great way to ensure a steady and progressive job.
