´´A monumental piece of work. Its comprehensive treatment of flight dynamics makes it the broadest in its class and constitutes a major contribution to the aerospace community. Destined for students´ shelves as well as mine, it will also be valuable as the methodological companion to the aircraft designer, flight test engineer, and pilot.´´--Eric Feron, Massachusetts Institute of Technology ´´This book is definitely a significant contribution to the field. It is more comprehensive than any other work on flight dynamics I have seen; it includes newer concepts, such as neural nets and wind shear effects, some of these reflecting the author´s own research; and it gives a very broad view of flight dynamics. Not only is it a fine textbook on flight dynamics, but it is so thorough and so well written that it will undoubtedly catch the attention of practicing engineers and airplane enthusiasts.´´--Haim Baruh, Rutgers University
