Product description

Review

"...a splendid book…For anyone involved in the design of general aviation (GA) aircraft and those deeply interested in the subject, this book is highly recommended." --The Aeronautical Journal, General Aviation Aircraft Design

"A truly excellent book on aircraft design. Unlike many modern text books, it really tells the "story" of the subject with lots of current, real-world examples, data, and cautions, along with the mathematical equations that dominate many engineering texts. On that note I’d put it in with the aeronautical engineering classics like Perkins and Hage, or Bruhn for aircraft structures. The illustrations and graphics are also first-rate. I believe that this book will find wide acceptance among practicing engineers and students." --Brian E. Meyer, Manager, Aircraft Applications Engineering, Hartzell Propeller Inc.
