Flight Without Formulae: Simple Discussions on the Mechanics of the Aeroplane
by Emile Auguste Duchene
Publisher: Longmans, Green and co. 1916
Number of pages: 232
The present work has throughout been written in the simplest possible language, and contains in its whole extent not a single formula. It treats of every one of the principles of flight and of every one of the problems involved in the mechanics of the aeroplane, and this without demanding from the reader more than the most elementary knowledge of arithmetic.

The book focuses on the synthesis of the fundamental disciplines and practical applications involved in the investigation, description, and analysis of aircraft flight including aerodynamics, propulsion, flight performance, stability, and control.

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.

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.
