The work aims at the extraction of principles of flight from, and the illustration of the use of, detailed information on aeronautics now available from many sources. The subject of aerodynamics is almost wholly based on experiment, and methods are described of obtaining basic information from tests on aircraft in flight or from tests in a wind channel on models of aircraft and aircraft parts.

A documentary journey into the history of aerodynamics in America. How ideas about aerodynamics first developed and how the technology evolved to forge the airplane into the revolutionary machine is the epic story told in this book.

A story of the most unusual flying machines ever flown, the lifting bodies. It is a story about the engineers who committed a significant part of their lives to prove that the concept was a viable one for use in spacecraft of the future.

Weight and balance, two of the most important factors affecting flight safety, are thoroughly discussed in this handbook. Indispensable for those responsible for aircraft weight distribution - the engineers, designers, and pilots.
