Aircraft flight

£9.99

Product description

Aircraft flight : a description of the physical principles of aircraft flight. by R H Barnard and D R Philpott. 2nd edition published 1995 by Longmans.
Paperback in very good condition.


The first edition of Aircraft Flight , published in 1989, broke new ground in the field of aviation literature by providing an accurate, rather than mathematical, description of aircraft flight. This revised second edition builds in the strengths of the first with a clear and thoroughly up-to-date description of the principles of aerodynamics, mechanics and propulsion. As well as being a 'how it works' book, the range of compromises, choices and influences that can affect design decisions are examined. Significant developments in the field have been put into their historical perspective to give the reader a complete overview of the subject. Aircraft Flight will prove invaluable to anyone working or planning a career in the aircraft industry. For students of aeronautical engineering, it contains all the descriptive material necessary for courses from technician to degree level, and is background reading to the more mathematical texts. For trainee pilots, military and commercial, it gives an understanding of the fundamental principles of flight. For new entrants to the aviation and aerospace industries, it provides a basic understanding of the technical principles of aeroplanes and for aviation enthusiasts it gives a non-mathematical treatment they can readily comprehend.
