The most exciting moment for an aeronautical engineer is when his or her design becomes a working aircraft, the endpoint of a journey that begins in the classroom. A required textbook for all cadets at the United States Air Force Academy, Introduction to Aeronautics: A Design Perspective shows students the methods and thought processes involved in designing aircraft. They learn through the use of specific analytical principles, practical examples, and case studies, with corresponding problems to solve. The Third Edition includes new or revised material on: Stealth; Boundary Layer Equations; Maximum Trimmable Lift Coefficient; Drag Curves; Flight Test; Aircraft Mechanisms.
