Flight mechanics is the science of predicting and controlling the motion that results from the aerodynamic forces and moments acting act on an aircraft. In this new Second Edition, Mechanics of Flight provides a logical order and extensive coverage in flight mechanics. With an accessible approach, this book offers problems, examples, theories, and applications. Fully updated to include the latest research and developments in flight mechanics plus new coverage of the asymetrical power problem, the Second Edition remains the most comprehensive and student-friendly coverage of mechanics of flight available.
