Overview

The hows and whys of  lighter and heavier than air flight are explained in theory, and described. in practice. Theoretical subjects include the Laws of Motion and Archimedes's and Bernoulli's Principles, as they apply to atmospheric flight.

Aircraft described and discussed include everything from the supersonic SR-71 Blackbird, and the Concorde,  to sporty ultralights including the man-powered Gossamer Albatross. Principles of space flight are discussed, including possible application of Relativity time contraction to deep space interstellar travel.

The text is non-technical, with numerous examples of practical applications. The 24 illustrations complement the text, and increase interest.. It is expected that flyers and non-flyers of all ages will find this book interesting, informative, and helpful.

This book is dedicated to all those fliers who making the supreme sacrifice bought the farm.
