520 3  This book is a concise practical treatise for the student 
       or experienced professional aircraft designer. This volume
       comprises key fundamental subjects for aerodynamic 
       performance analysis: the basics of flight mechanics 
       bridging both engineering and piloting perspectives, 
       propulsion system performance attributes, practical drag 
       prediction methods, aircraft "up and away" flight 
       performance and aircraft mission performance. This book 
       may serve as a textbook for an undergraduate aircraft 
       performance course or as a reference for the classically 
       trained practicing engineer.
