Birds, insects, animals and fish have been flying for millions of years, while mankind’s ability to fly is a very recent phenomenon.

This fully illustrated 118-page ebook explains the physics behind flight (thrust, drag, lift, weight) and looks at various types of ‘flying machines’ including gliders, balloons and parachutes.

The book 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.
