    Hence the lunar module designers turned to a sophisticated, computer-controlled active guidance system. The lunar module had two stages, one used for the descent and another for the return to lunar orbit and rendezvous with the command module. The descent stage engine had a throttle to control the amount of thrust.   Professional Licensure Disclosure. The BS in Aerospace with the Professional Pilot concentration at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) is accredited by the Aviation Accreditation Board International and is an approved Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part Flight School. The study of 'aircraft control' combines the knowledge of aerodynamics with the physical systems of an aircraft to enhance the aircraft's performance under varying conditions. In order to analyze the high number of variables that come into play, numerical methods and differential equations are used to model the real world conditions. Fixed-base flight simulators alone would not be realistic enough to practice the specific skills that would be needed to make a successful touchdown on an unknown and potentially hostile planet. Several ways were proposed to let astronauts simulate the final portion of the descent to the Moon in a free-flying vehicle.
