The modern flight dynamicist requires a thorough understanding of the classical stability and control theory of aircraft, a working appreciation of flight control systems, and consequently, a grounding in the theory of automatic control. In this text, the author fulfils these requirements by developing the theory of stability and control of aircraft in a systems context. The key considerations are introduced using dimensional or normalised dimensional forms of the aircraft equations of motion. Through necessity, the scope of the text is limited to linearised small perturbation aircraft models. The material is intended for those coming to the subject for the first time, and provides a secure foundation from which to move into non-linear flight dynamics, simulation and advanced flight control. Placing emphasis on dynamics and their importance to flying and handling qualities, it is accessible to both the aeronautical engineer and the control engineer.

This thorough discussion of the classical stability and control theory of aircraft helps readers gain an appreciation of flight control systems. They will learn how to analyze and evaluate aircraft flying qualities and initiate preliminary augmentation design, as well as develop a foundation from which to move onto non-linear flight dynamics, simulation, and flight control.Review:
