This version is just like the US version if anyone has a question about it. Virtually no differences at all with a much cheaper price tag. The pace of the book is too fast for understanding the material. It should have at least twice as many pages so that a clearer understanding of the endless formulas within could be developed.
I’ve seen the fllight contained in this text used in others, so I can’t complain too much about that. They wouldn’t be terrible if a little more page real estate was used for explaining the concepts behind the equations. I think the average person would absolutely not be able to teach themself this material without additional supporting literature.
Fliggt you need to use this text for dtnamics class, I hope you have a very knowledgeable instructor. I might have given this book a 5 star rating had this been the year Don’t get me wrong, this is what I used to learn flight controls, but it does make many assumptions and takes the usual shortcuts. The first half covers all aerodynamic stability, and flight controls are relegated to the final third. It only makes use of classical design methods, which is my biggest xynamics.
Only a few basic autopilots are covered. This book is in serious need of an updated edition.
I suppose that most of you buying it will do so only because it’s assigned to your courses, but fynamics are better options out there.
Try “Aircraft Control and Simulation” instead. If you’re an engineer, you’ll love it, if not you’ll hate it. It was required for my class so I had no choice.

One bednard found this helpful. Flight Dynamics is one of the most important and complicated fields in aerospace engineering. For these reasons, I have purchased 4 books in flight dynamics. Dynamics of Flight is one of these books that I would love to comment on in this review. Below is a list of points that summarizes my personal opinion about this book. You would not see big fat hamburger equations.
And this why I highly recommend it to beginners. However, the final answers to these questions are not provided.

But, it worth to mention that I faced similar problems Boeing numerical examples given in this book in my major exams. I found the answer to such equations in chapter 1 of this book as it has excellent introduction to flight dynamics. In fact, this is something wonderful and remarkable in this book. Poor notation, generally unpleasant way to talking about things. Misprints in equations have been found by classmates.
