This book provides a comprehensive and integrated exposure to airplane performance, stability, dynamics, and flight control. It supports a two-semester course for senior undergraduate or first-year graduate students in aerospace engineering. Basic aerodynamics, dynamics, and linear control systems are presented to help the reader grasp the main subject matter. In this text, the airplane is assumed to be a rigid body--elastic deformations and their effects on airplane motion are not considered. Numerous solved examples illustrate theory and design methods. Several exercise problems with answers are included in each chapter to help the reader acquire problem-solving skills. In addition, MATLAB tools are used for the control design. In the second edition, lists of symbols/nomenclature and tables of important formulas are included to facilitate the reader.If a booster failed, the system would revert to full manual control. Aircraft using such semimanual systems include the Boeing 707 series and the B-52 Stratofortress Bomber. As flight speed increased further, it became more and more difficult toanbsp;...
