A complete reference on modern flight control methods for fixed-wing aircraft, this authoritative book includes contributions from an international group of experts in their respective specialised fields, largely from industry. Split into two parts, the first section of the book deals with the fundamentals of flight control systems design, while the second concentrates on genuine applications based on the modern control methods used in the latest aircraft. It is assumed that the reader will have some knowledge of classical control. The book builds upon the foundations laid by standard texts on flight control so that the reader will gain a good background in current industrial practice and be in a position to benefit from more specialised reading. Its prime aim is to bridge the gap between academic research and real-world applications in the area and its emphasis on practical approaches will make it particularly suitable for: * practising engineers who are relatively new to the aviation industry and require a consolidated approach to the different aspects of flight control * postgraduate students in strategic or applied research * final stage undergraduates.

Review:

'A most distinguishing feature of a distinguished book is its outstanding success in fulfilling its prime aim of bridging the gap between academic research and real-world applications in the area, and its emphasis on practical approaches that makes it particularly suitable for practising engineers who are relatively new in the aviation industry and require a consolidated approach to the different aspects of flight control.

In short, the clarity and practicality of the book will be of great assistance to all engineers with an interest in flight control. Postgraduate students in strategic or applied research and final stage undergraduates will also find it an extremely useful reference text.'

--Current Engineering Practice

'a book which aerospace professionals should find to be informative and enjoyable.'

--The Aeronautical Journal
