Introduction to Aircraft Flight Mechanics, Second Edition revises and expands this acclaimed, widely adopted textbook. Outstanding for use in undergraduate aeronautical engineering curricula, it is written for those first encountering the topic by clearly explaining the concepts and derivations of equations involved in aircraft flight mechanics. The text begins with a review of basic aerodynamics and propulsion and continues through aircraft performance, equations of motion, static stability, linearizing equations of motion, dynamic stability, classical feedback control, stability and control augmentation, Bode, state space, and special topics. The second edition also features insights about the A-10 based upon the author's career experience with this aircraft. Past winner of the AIAA Summerfield Book Award, this text contributes greatly to learning the fundamental principles of flight mechanics that are a crucial foundation of any aeronautical engineering curricula. It contains both real world applications and problems. A solutions manual is available to instructors by contacting AIAA.
