Comprehensive textbook which introduces the fundamentals of aerospace engineering with a flight test perspective

Introduction to Aerospace Engineering with a Flight Test Perspective is an introductory level text in aerospace engineering with a unique flight test perspective. Flight test, where dreams of aircraft and space vehicles actually take to the sky, is the bottom line in the application of aerospace engineering theories and principles. Designing and flying the real machines are often the reasons that these theories and principles were developed. This book provides a solid foundation in many of the fundamentals of aerospace engineering, while illuminating many aspects of real-world flight. Fundamental aerospace engineering subjects that are covered include aerodynamics, propulsion, performance, and stability and control.

Key features:

  • Covers aerodynamics, propulsion, performance, and stability and control.
  • Includes self-contained sections on ground and flight test techniques.
  • Includes worked example problems and homework problems.
  • Suitable for introductory courses on Aerospace Engineering.
  • Excellent resource for courses on flight testing.

Introduction to Aerospace Engineering with a Flight Test Perspective is essential reading for undergraduate and graduate students in aerospace engineering, as well as practitioners in industry. It is an exciting and illuminating read for the aviation enthusiast seeking deeper understanding of flying machines and flight test.
