Flight Without Formulae: Simple Discussions on the Mechanics of the Aeroplane
by Emile Auguste Duchene
Publisher: Longmans, Green and co. 1916
Number of pages: 232
The present work has throughout been written in the simplest possible language, and contains in its whole extent not a single formula. It treats of every one of the principles of flight and of every one of the problems involved in the mechanics of the aeroplane, and this without demanding from the reader more than the most elementary knowledge of arithmetic.

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.
