PREFACE
The purpose of this textbook is to present the elements of appliedaerodynamics and aeronautical engineering which relate directly tothe problems of flying operations.All Naval Aviators possessa naturalinterest in the basic aerodynamic factors which affect the performanceof all aircraft. Due .to the increasing complexity of modern aircraft,this natural interest must be applied to develop a sound understandingof basic engineering principles and an appreciation of some of the moreadvanced problems of aerodynamics and engineering.The safety andeffectiveness of flying operations will depend greatly on the under-standing and appreciation of how and why an airplane flies. Theprinciples of aerodynamics will provide the foundations for developingexacting and precise flying techniques and operational procedures.The content of this textbook has been arranged to provide as com-plete as possible a reference for all phases of flying in Naval Aviation.Hence, the text material is applicable to the problems of flight train-ing, transition training, and general flying operations. The mannerof presentation throughout the text has been designed to provide theelements of both theory and application and will allow either directedor unassisted study. As a result, the text material’will be applicableto supplement formal class Iectures and briefings and provide readingmaterial as a background for training and flying operations.Much of the specialized mathematical detail of aerodynamics hasbeen omitted wherever it was considered unnecessary in the field offlying operations. Also, many of the basic assumptions and limita-tions of certain parts of aerodynamic theory have been omitted for thesake of simplicity and clarity of presentation.In order to contend withthese specific shortcomings, the Naval Aviator should rely on theassistance of certain specially qualified individuals within Naval Avia-tion. For example, graduate aeronautical engineers, graduates of theTest Pilot Training School at the Naval Air Test Center, graduates ofthe Naval Aviation Safety Officers Course, and technical representativesof the manufacturers are qualified to assist in interpreting and applyingthe more difficult parts of aerodynamics and aeronautical engineering.To be sure, the specialized qualifications of these individuals shouldbe utilized wherever possible.
