Introduction to the Aerodynamics of FlightIntroduction to the Aerodynamics of Flight
by Theodore A. Talay - NASA History Division
This book is an introductory course in aerodynamics. It provides more than a layman's treatment of the subject but not the detail as taught in many individual courses on the college level. The result is a highly qualitative, illustrated set of notes.
