Written for those coming to the subject for the first time, the book provides a secure foundation from which to move on to more advanced topics such as, non-linear flight dynamics, flight simulation, handling qualities and advanced flight control.
New to this edition:
- Additional examples to illustrate the application of computational procedures using tools such as MATLABÂ®, MathCadÂ® and Program CCÂ®.
- Improved compatibility with, and more expansive coverage of the North American notational style.
- Expanded coverage of lateral-directional static stability, maneuverability, command augmentation and flight in turbulence.
- An additional coursework study on flight control design for an unmanned air vehicle (UAV).
