ABOUT THE BOOK

Written by Steve Pomroy, an experienced pilot and flight instructor also trained as an aerospace engineer, Applied Aerodynamics: for Private and Commercial Pilots introduces pilots to flight theory and it’s application to real-world flight operations.

The book is divided into two parts—Theory and Practice. Part One introduces the topics of aerodynamics and flight mechanics as they apply to pilots. Part Two discusses how this theory applies to the operation of aircraft.

Together, the two parts of the book supplement flight instruction, providing pilots with the necessary background to learn competent handling of their aircraft.
