The companion "RDS-Student" aircraft design software also has been extensively improved, and is a valuable complement to the text. "RDS-Student" incorporates the design and analysis methods of the book in menu-driven, easy-to-use modules. Like the book, the program is now metric-friendly and all inputs and outputs can be interchanged between metric and fps units with the press of a button. A full user's manual is provided with the software, along with the complete data files used for the Lightweight Supercruise Fighter design example in the back of the book.
"RDS-Student" runs on any PC compatible system (486 or better) and runs on any version of Windows or DOS. An 80-page user's guide accompanies the software.
