about

Written by one of the most succesful aerospace authors, this new book develops aircraft performance techniques from first principles and applies then to real airplanes. It also address a philosophy of, and techniques for aircraft design. By developing and discussing these two subjects in a single text, the author captures a degree of synergism not found in other texts. The book is written in a conversational style, a trademark of all of John Anderson's texts, to enhance the readers' understanding.
