Aerodynamics (Module 8) covers the skills and knowledge required of the aviation maintenance technician regarding how and why aircraft fly. You will learn by understanding concepts, not just rote memorization and you will learn how and why each concept is useful in the day-day tasks of the aircraft technician in an aviation maintenance environment.
This book is fully compliant as EASA Part 66 module 8 for the B1 and B2 license and has been given approvals by numerous EASA based civil aviation authorities.
