Customer Reviews For Understanding Flight:

Fantastic resource
by A Customer from Wisconsin 

Pros: very detailed and understandable explanations of flight
Cons: can be a bit overwhelming the first time through- requires reviewing of some topics
Review: A perfectly written description of the physics of flight including many pictures and illustrations to enhance the topics. The main theme of the book is clearing up the misconceptions of Bernoulli's Principle as related to flight and replacing this flawed description with one that is based on Newton's laws and other basic physics principles. The descriptions are detailed enough to give the reader a firm understanding without being too complex that the reader gets lost.
