Library E-Books

We are signed up with aggregators who resell networkable e-book editions of our titles to academic libraries. These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus.

These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a "patron-driven demand" model.

This book introduces certain aspects of mathematics and sciences in general, as they relate to the subject of aviation, from the wheels-up to the wheels-down, and the time in between. The topics include meteorology, thermodynamics, combustion, drones, mechanics, dynamics, navigation, flight plans, and general aviation-related guidance. The book also presents the use of statistical analysis in describing the aircraft characteristics based on performance charts. The book may be used as a reference and includes examples and case studies with step-by-step solutions. Readers new to the field who are working towards their recreational, private, or commercial licenses or one already flying a single piston or multi-engine aircraft will benefit from the content.

Features:

  • Includes aviation-related case studies, where the reader can see how the conceptual material is applied to practical scenarios.
  • Derives equations, displays the relations in diagrams, and shows the applications of statistical methods to analyses of aircraft performance charts, providing powerful tools for aviation-related research. Mechanical modelling of flying objects and weight-and-balance calculation methodologies are discussed as well.
  • Provides pertinent historical background to aviation-related topics such as meteorology, navigation, and mapping, enabling the reader to put in context the current state of are in these areas.
  • Presents in detail all essential elements of a real-world flight plan, enabling the reader to use the methodology and example when creating their own flight plans.
