This 120-page ebook is based around a series of lectures given by Group Captain Philip Langrill OBE to the Gwynedd Engineering Society.

During his career in the RAF, Mr Langrill experienced at first hand the developments in aerodynamics which saw a transition from piston powered light aircraft to jet propelled fighter planes.

This fully illustrated book explains the physics behind flight (thrust, drag, lift, weight) and looks at various types of ‘flying machines’ including gliders, balloons and parachutes.

Topics discussed include: electric powered aircraft; how to glide; pitching, rolling and yawing; flying with four wings; and dangerous flying manoeuvres.
