This highly regarded textbook presents the entire process of aircraft conceptual design—from requirements definition to initial sizing, configuration layout, analysis, sizing, and trade studies—in the same manner seen in industry aircraft design groups. Interesting and easy to read, the book has more than 900 pages of design methods, illustrations, tips, explanations, and equations, and has extensive appendices with key data essential to design. The book is the required design text at numerous universities around the world and is a favorite of practicing design engineers.

RDS-STUDENT aircraft design software 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 69-page 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.
