This book is a modern treatment of the aerodynamic principles of helicopters and rotating-wing vertical lift aircraft. Part one covers the technical history of helicopter flight, basic methods of rotor aerodynamics, and performance-related design issues. Part two contains advanced topics in helicopter aerodynamics, including airfoil flows, unsteady aerodynamics, dynamic stall, rotor wakes, and rotor-airframe aerodynamic interactions. Part three contains chapters on autogiros and advanced aerodynamic analysis and a new chapter on the aerodynamics of wind turbines. The book is extensively illustrated and contains homework problems.

J. Gordon Leishman is the Minta Martin Chair of Engineering and Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland. He is a former aerodynamicist at Westland Helicopters and has written extensively on topics in helicopter aerodynamics. Dr Leishman is a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society and an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He is also Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of the American Helicopter Society.Review:
"Professor Leishman has provided a significant addition to the literature that will prove its worth for many years to come."
Alfred Gessow, Vertiflite
"[A] complete treatment of the subject, pulling together between its covers all the relevant topics in a useable manner. The book will be suitable for anyone in the industry or academia who has to function at a high technical level. In particular, I recommend it highly to those of us who are not aerodynamicists per se, but need to be increasingly well informed on aerodynamic matters..."
Stewart Houston, Aerospace Journal
"Not only is this book a good text for the graduate student but it is also a good book for practical engineers and researchers ... This book is an excellent addition to a reference library."
Chee Tung, AIAA Journal
