Product Details


A brief but lucid introduction to aerodynamics, kitted up with materials for five ultralightweight flying models.Supported by clearly labeled diagrams and cartoon portraits of typical and historical aircraft, the explanations of thrust, lift, roll, yaw, pitch and other considerations that must be taken into account when designing even the simplest fliers and gliders will give young aeronauts a good grounding in the basics.
—Kirkus Reviews

An accessible, edifying entry point into building model planes.
—Publishers Weekly

The models are colorful and easy to build… There’s a reason why airplane books are so popular: Appealing to both boys and girls, they’re educational and offer hours of fun.
