Aerodynamics and Flight Dynamics of Turbojet Aircraft
by T.I. Ligum
Publisher: NASA 1969
Number of pages: 253
Practical aerodynamics includes studying the laws of the motion of air and the interaction of air flows with bodies moving in them, the interaction of shock waves with various parts of the aircraft, aircraft flight dynamics as affected by the forces applied to the aircraft (including aerodynamic forces), and aircraft stability and handiness. It is the object of this book to examine these questions in terms of turbojet passenger aircraft.

Weight and balance, two of the most important factors affecting flight safety, are thoroughly discussed in this handbook. Indispensable for those responsible for aircraft weight distribution - the engineers, designers, and pilots.
by Donald L. Mallick - University Press of the Pacific
The book tells the dramatic story of a NASA research pilot who logged over 11,000 flight hours in more than 125 types of aircraft. Mallick gives the reader fascinating first-hand descriptions of his carrier operations and his research flying career.
