Overview

THE ready source of data used in the field of Lightplane Design. The tools rather than the derivations. Presented in a form useful to the "Eyeball" designer as well as the engineer. This requires the use of approx. methods (good enough) where the classical approach requires an engineering background.

Reviews

Poorly printed. Bad xerox reproduction of a type written document. Just pages of mathematical forumulas with no guidance on how to use those formulas. It would be a good reference book for an advanced aircraft designer but useless for the average home builder. Very disappointed with the product for the high cost paid.
