Flight Performance of Aircraft
Flight Performance of Aircraft is an academic book that directly corresponds to real-life situations. This text presents performance analysis of almost all the phases of flight, including takeoff, climb, cruise, turn, descent, and landing. A list of problems is provided at the end of each chapter to encourage problem solving and theory comprehension.
