Synopsis Looks at the history, development and application of piston aero engines, from those used in the Wright brothers' pioneering aircraft early this century to the small machines which power microlights today. This is not simply a technical textbook listing various engines, but instead discusses the principles involoved in the workings and evolution of these power plants, chronicles their many different applications and ponders what the future may hold. Review on Amazon :I thought I knew a bit about IC aero engines until I read this book. It is full of Quite detailed technical info, but it is delivered in a way that makes it seem common sense. All aspects of design, manufacture and use of IC aero engines are covered and the author credits the reader with some intelligence. I'm half way through my third read at the moment. Very interesting for non engine fans too, as the basics are covered, but not in a patronizing manner. One of my favourite buys from amazon.
