Most of the pilots and flight students cringe at the mention of aerodynamics, because most courses and books on the subject, so the use of complex scientific theories and complex mathematical formulas. However, understanding the aerodynamics are critical operation and maintenance of aircraft. This unique introductory guide, in its first edition sold more than 20,000 copies, and prove that the principles of flight, can be easily understood, even charming, want to know how and why the behavior of the aircraft, because of its pilots and technical staff . Demonstrates how to avoid technical jargon and complex calculations, Hubert Smith “Skip” aerodynamic factors affect aircraft lift, thrust, drag, performance, stability and control of the air. Readers can also get inside look at how to design in modern aircraft, including all of the steps in the design process, from conceptual design to flight test and the reasons behind them. This version provides coverage aircraft turn and climb performance acceleration, takeoff speed, load and speed, the load factor, the district rules, and hypersonic flight, as well as state-of-the-art laminar flow airfoil wing and body design, high-performance lightplanes. The question and answer section is added to use in the classroom.
