In The Art of Flight, John Watkinson chronicles the disciplines and major technologies that allow heavier-than-air machines to take flight. He explains how airplanes actually fly via a qualitative understanding of the underlying process, rather than a heavy reliance on mathematics. After providing historical and technical background the author in turn examines aerodynamics, the power plant, flight information, control, performance, surface effect, and more. Readers are guided on a fascinating journey through the concepts and systems that make flight possible. The Art of Flight will appeal to the technically-minded reader who seeks a reflective, thoughtful introduction to the concepts that allow flight.
