Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0966955307, Hardcover)

This unique book by Prof. Fred Thomas of the Technical University of Braunschweig grew out of the author's work with the Braunschweig Akaflieg (University-affiliated Academic Flying Group). In its original German, it served as a textbook and valuable reference for students in the Akafliegs. This English edition has been expanded and updated to include many sailplanes and technical developments appearing since the latest German edition.

The book emphasizes physical relationships rather than mathematical detail, making it suitable for beginning pilots and engineers alike.

Discusses the design of high-performance sailplanes: Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics, Certification Regulations, Cross-Country Theory, and Design Optimization. Includes a reference section with basic design data for over 150 sailplanes.
