Longitudinal aircraft dynamics
variables are (small) deviations from operating point or trim conditions
u: velocity of aircraft along body axis
v: velocity of aircraft perpendicular to body axis
(down is positive)
: angle between body axis and horizontal
(up is positive)
q : angular velocity of aircraft (pitch rate)
Software Dynamics was created in 1987.
Aircraft Engineering is usually meant for the manufacturing of aircraft. Aeronautical Engineering is for the creation of new 'in air' flying machines. Aerospace Engineering is for the creation of 'in air' as well as 'in thin air' and space flying machines.
Aerospace Engineering degree provides a basic knowledge of engineering that will allow you to get a beginning position in any design field. This include aircraft structures, structural dynamics, fluid dynamics, mechanical controls and computer controls. One speciality is flight dynamics that can get a job of flight simulator design. I've known one graduate who was hired by an Insurance company because of knowledge of the various disciplines: i.e. electrical, chemical, mechanical, etc.
Yes! The wave vibration is in the direction the wave is moving, i.e. Longitudinal.

The longitudinal axis of an airplane is an imaginary line running lengthwise from nose to tail. Movement around the longitudinal axis is referred to as "roll" and is controlled by the ailerons. Movement about the longitudinal axis results in a banked attitude of the aircraft (where one wing is higher than the other) and, combined with rudder input causes the aircraft to turn.

A part of the airfield where aircraft are worked on.
Roll is the movement of the aircraft around it's longitudinal axis, this is a line from the nose to the tail.
That is when a group or a company will rent an entire aircraft for a specific journey.
The payload is the cargo that it carries.

Roll, pitch, and yaw - flight dynamics. See the below link for more info.
The characteristics of the aircraft KFM 112M is a four cylinder with dual ignition and is meant to be designed for an ultralight aircraft and motor glides.
Dutch roll is the tendency of an aircraft to roll and yaw about its longitudinal and vertical axis due to inherent instability in the design of the aircraft. Generally it is the result of a small vertical stabilizer design.
