Discover how planes get–and stay–airborne
Now you can truly master an understanding of the phenomenon of flight. This practical guide is the most intuitive introduction to basic flight mechanics available. Understanding Flight, Second Edition, explains the principles of aeronautics in terms, descriptions, and illustrations that make sense–without complicated mathematics. Updated to include helicopter flight fundamentals and aircraft structures, this aviation classic is required reading for new pilots, students, engineers, and anyone fascinated with flight.
Understanding Flight, Second Edition, covers:
Physics of flight
Wing design and configuration
Stability and control
Performance and safety
Helicopters and autogyros
Aircraft structures and materials
What are you looking for?
This book is written by very accomplished aeronautical industry/academic professionals. Do you want their insights? Or, do you want their formulae?
Many want the formulae, but I wanted the insights. And that is exactly what this book provides.
If you are looking for a fresh, experienced, and non-dogmatic view of the principles of flight then this is the book for you.
You’ll get it as soon as you get through about 20 pages. This isn’t your sad physics teacher’s regurgitation text on flight. It is real and begins to point light on lift and aerodynamics for those of a more philosophically curious nature.
Simple, straight-forward, and with the gravity of experience. Excellent.
