The emphasis is on deriving and utilizing easy analytical expressions instead of on computations from broad numerical facts, yet all of the exemplary calculations seek advice from present sorts of plane and the few worthy info are supplied. The higher a part of the e-book refers to subsonic plane flying at subcritical speeds, that are handled utilizing really uncomplicated equations, however it is proven that a few of this simplicity should be carried over to transonic and supersonic speeds.
