The study of flight dynamics requires a thorough understanding of the theory of the stability and control of aircraft, an appreciation of flight control systems and a grounding in the theory of automatic control. Flight Dynamics Principles is a student-focused text and provides easy access to all three topics in an integrated modern systems context. Written for those coming to the subject for the first time, the book provides a secure foundation from which to move on to more advanced topics such as, non-linear flight dynamics, flight simulation, handling qualities and advanced flight control. New to this edition: - Additional examples to illustrate the application of computational procedures using tools such as MATLAB®, MathCad® and Program CC®. - Improved compatibility with, and more expansive coverage of the North American notational style. - Expanded coverage of lateral-directional static stability, maneuverability, command augmentation and flight in turbulence.

- An additional coursework study on flight control design for an unmanned air vehicle (UAV).
