Hello. I'm not a mechanical or aerospace ingineer, but it's interesting for me.
What are the main areas of physics and mathematics for aerospace engineer? It seems to me, that main areas of maths are calculus and differential equations, maybe some linear algebra. And I think, that main areas of physics are mechanics and thermodynamics.

Just go take a look at the curricula for aerospace engineers at several universities to get an idea of what is typically required. For example:
http://aerospace.illinois.edu/undergraduate-programs/current-students/curriculum
http://engineering.tamu.edu/media/1429234/Fall-2014-course-title.pdf
http://www.engin.umich.edu/aero/academics/undergrad/program/requirements

You can use those kind of pages to see course numbers at the very least and then match that to the school's course catalog. The same sites usually also have a list of all courses offered by a department, so you can see the kind of advanced courses offered in addition to the basics. Pretty much any university will have this information available.
