Elements of airplane performance, 2nd editionThis book contains sixteen chapters and four appendices which form a compre-hensive teaching text on the subject of airplane performance. The fi rst seven chapters are designed to provide necessary background material in mechanics, aerodynamics, atmospheric science, air data instruments, and propulsion. In addi-tion, the appendices furnish basic data and information on the theory pertinent to a clear understanding of the different problems. Chapters 8-13, in particular, treat the point performance of the airplane, i.e. The Summer Solstice By Nick Joaquin Pdf To Word. , the performance that pertain to given point on the fl ight path.
