"I never felt that I had a good formulation of (Design) until I read the introduction of Daniel Raymer's Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach. Raymer... implies that design involves far more than drawing a pretty shape and then shoe-horning people, engines, and structural members into it. It involves art. Raymer's book... takes a practical, rather than academic, view of the development of a design. It covers not only aerodynamics, stability, and stress analysis...but also the interstitial stuff about general arrangement and the interplay of competing design considerations that are really the grout that holds a design together. --Peter Garrison, in Flying, May 1997 Reliable--as always from AIAA, the best source of quality aircraft technical literature.--Craig Roberts, Roberts Sport Aircraft Outstanding Reference--more homebuilders/designers should purchase this text! Keep making your books available to the EAA!!-- Brad Knapp, EAA It was as if this book was written specifically for me and brought closure to theoretical concepts with understanding. --James"
