About this Item

"Aircraft Basic Science" is dated 1953; the other two volumes 1955. No dust jackets. Appear to deal completely with propeller-driven aircraft, which is no shock given that the courses were presumably training commercial aircraft mechanics of the era. There is a section on maintenance and repair of wooden aircraft. Needless to say, much of this material could prove inapplicable to maintaining more modern commercial aircraft to current standards. All three volumes grade good to very-good with no major problems. NAI was founded in Inglewood, Calif., in the 1940s by Jack Northrop of Northrop Aviation to train aircraft mechanics and engineers. Due to financial difficulties, the school became independent from Northrop Aircraft in 1953. The name of the school was changed to the Northrop Institute of Technology, and subsequently (in 1971) to Northrop University. The university closed in 1993 but the campus was acquired by Rice Aviation and continues to operate as the Northrop Rice Advanced Institute of Technology. NOTE: These volumes will ship in a box at about 11 pounds, combined. Domestic Media Mail shipping within the U.S. will run $8; shipping to Canada $60; overseas shipping is estimated to cost $75.
