The work aims at the extraction of principles of flight from, and the illustration of the use of, detailed information on aeronautics now available from many sources. The subject of aerodynamics is almost wholly based on experiment, and methods are described of obtaining basic information from tests on aircraft in flight or from tests in a wind channel on models of aircraft and aircraft parts.

These are a set of class notes for a gas dynamics/viscous flow course taught to juniors in Aerospace Engineering. It is expected that the student has some familiarity with concepts such as material derivatives, control volume analysis, etc.

This is a formal college engineering textbook, complete with homework problems. It will be understandable for students of engineering system dynamics, a valuable teaching resource for course instructors, and a useful reference for self-study.

A theory of subsonic flight based on a combination of analysis and computation. We uncover a mechanism for the generation of substantial lift at the expense of small drag of a wing, which is fundamentally different from the classical theories.
