Product Description

The third book in a series on Advanced Flight Techniques for the professional pilot by Les Kumpula, Professor Emeritus, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.

Aerodynamic Principles for Professional Pilots illustrates the essential aerodynamic principles and applications relevant to flight technique issues. Applications are presented at the professional pilot level without unnecessary context, utilizing a visual format emphasizing pictorial concepts that enhance learning and retention.

Unlike aircraft performance and design, where aerodynamic equations provide numerical data, precision flying requires a thorough understanding of non-numerical aerodynamic principles. In the development of piloting skill, aerodynamic principles are applied qualitatively rather than quantitatively. The graphical methods used in this book are especially effective in showing these essential pilot technique principles.

NOTE: Includes downloadable videos and simulations.
