Theory and Design ofAir Cushion Craft

It is 39 years since sea trials of the first hovercraft. Hovercraft are a new means of transportation, and so machinery, equipment and structural materials have had to be adapted for successful use in their special operating environment, which differs from that in aviation and for other marine vessels. A somewhat difficult technical and economic …

Performances of light aircraft

Pilots, aviation students, kitplane builders, aircraft fleet operators and aeronautical engineers can all determine how their propeller-driven airplanes will perform, under any conditions, by using the step-by-step bootstrap approach introduced in this book. A few routine flying manoeuvres (climbs, glides, a level speed run) will give the necessary nine numbers. High-school level calculations then give …
