Item Picture
written by John Denker
This website contains an online book about the physics of airplanes and flight. Its main topics cover perceptions of pilots, procedures for piloting, and the science principles behind flying. This book is intended to appeal to pilots and everyone else who is interested in how airplanes behave. The idea is to concentrate on ideas that are useful in the cockpit, and to explain them as clearly as possible. In addition to describing how the airplane behaves, this book describes in some detail why the airplane behaves that way.
