Presenting in one volume the methodologies behind aircraft design, this book uses a systems engineering approach to cover the components and the issues affected by design procedures. The basic topics that are essential to the process, such as aerodynamics and controls, are covered first of all. The author then explains the design process in a holistic manner to emphasize the integration of individual components into the overall design. Throughout the book, the various design options are considered and weighed against each other, to give readers a practical understanding of the process overall.
