"A short section of this work was published in article form in "Sport Aviation" magazine in February 1999. NASA picked up the article for their web site; it is used in several flight schools; and, has been translated into French and Spanish. Further, a New Zealand high school student won his science fair using Anderson's and Eberhardt's work. Wendell Piepgrass, Flight Training Coordinator (flight school): "Not being an engineer, I appreciate very much what you...are doing here, because being able to form visually based concepts is important...." "...this presentation...effectively and clearly puts a very complex subject into terms most persons with a technical interest can understand. I wish...this chapter were a prime requirement for airman certification.Contraportada:
Get to the heart of how planes fly
Never before has it been so easy to grasp how planes fly!
Of keen importance to pilots, essential to engineers, and intriguing even to the earthbound, the principles of flight are often parroted but widely misunderstood. Now you can be among those who truly get it.
The simplest way to master an understanding of the science of flight.
This enlightening book helps you bypass common distortions, misconceptions, and half-truths and genuinely understand how aeronautics works.
This book gives you brain- and gut-level understanding of what gets you up there and keeps you up there!
*Explains flight in simple, intuitive terms
