#01 The Wright Brothers: The Dramatic Story-Behind-the-Story

The Wright Brothers: The Dramatic Story-Behind-the-Story

On a winter day in 1903, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, two unknown brothers from Ohio changed history. But it would take the world some time to believe what had happened: the age of flight had begun, with the first heavier-than-air, powered machine carrying a pilot. Who were these men and how was it that they achieved what they did?

David McCullough, two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, tells the surprising, profoundly human story of Wilbur and Orville Wright. Far more than a couple of unschooled Dayton bicycle mechanics who happened to hit on success, they were men of exceptional courage and determination, and of far-ranging intellectual interests and ceaseless curiosity, much of which they attributed to their upbringing.

In this thrilling book, McCullough draws on the immense riches of the WrightPapers, including private diaries, notebooks, scrapbooks, and more than a thousand letters from private family correspondence to tell the human side of the Wright Brothers' story, including the little-known contributions of their sister, Katharine, without whom things might well have gone differently for them.

#03 GE Aviation: 100 Years of Reimagining Flight


GE Aviation: 100 Years of Reimagining Flight

GEAviation: 100 Years of Reimagining Flight tells the personal stories and technology triumphs behind a world-changing aviation company. Headquartered today in the Cincinnati suburb of Evendale, Ohio, GE Aviation was born boosting the power of biplanes in the skies over Dayton, Ohio, in 1919, and became a pioneer jet propulsion company in Lynn, Massachusetts, in the 1940s. In the 1950s and 1960s, GE engines from Evendale enabled jet fighters and bombers to set multiple speed records, while Lynn engines drove helicopter and business jet technology. GE Aviation entered the 21st century at the vanguard of aircraft propulsion, powering classic commercial jetliners and regional jets as well as historic military aircraft, such as the F-16 and F-18, the B-2 bomber,and the Black Hawk helicopter.

#04 The Power to Fly: An Engineer's Life


The Power to Fly: An Engineer's Life

Moving on from the conceptual design of an aircraft, it becomes necessary to lay down the details of the airframe. This is effectively done in two stages--derivation of the applied loading and layout/sizing of the primary structural members. In his latest contribution to the literature Aircraft Loading and Structural Layout Denis Howe provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of loading actions analysis, together with the logical extension to the conceptual designof the airframe. He thereby meets two perceived needs that are not currently addressed by existing aircraft design texts, where loading analysis tends to be dealt with somewhat superficially, treating only the basic symmetric flight envelope, and where structural analysis often assumes that a certain level of design detail has already been established. The author's comprehensive lecture notes, accumulated during 45 years of teaching aircraft design at Cranfield University provided the basis for this valuable reference text that offers a straightforward, systematic approach to the quantitative derivation of the initial structural concept.
