Overview

The design, development, analysis, and evaluation of new aircraft technologies such as fly by wire, unmanned aerial vehicles, and micro air vehicles, necessitate a better understanding of flight mechanics on the part of the aircraft-systems analyst. A text that provides unified coverage of aircraft flight mechanics and systems concept will go a long way to making analysis of these new technologies quicker and easier.
