This text provides a thorough, modern treatment of the aerodynamic principles of helicopters and other rotating-wing vertical lift aircraft. It covers basic topics of aerodynamic analysis, helicopter performance and design, and advanced topics, including airfoil flows and unsteady aerodynamics. Every chapter includes numerous illustrations, a bibliography, and homework problems.

'… Professor Leishman has provided a significant addition to the literature that will prove its worth for many years to come.' Alfred Gessow, Vertiflite
'… a complete treatment of the subject, pulling together between its covers all the relevant topics in a useable manner. The book will be suitable for anyone in the industry or academia who has to function at a high technical level. In particular, I recommend it highly to those of us who are not aerodynamicists per se, but need to be increasingly well informed on aerodynamic matters …' Stewart Houston, Aerospace Journal
'Not only is this book a good text for the graduate student but it is also a good book for practical engineers and researchers … This book is an excellent addition to a reference library.' Chee Tung, AIAA Journal
