This book provides a comprehensive and integrated exposure to airplane performance, stability, dynamics, and flight control. The text supports a two-semester course for senior undergraduate or first-year graduate students in aerospace engineering.

Basic aerodynamics, dynamics, and linear control systems are presented to help the reader grasp the main subject matter. In this text, the airplane is assumed to be a rigid body -- elastic deformations and their effects on airplane motion are not considered.
