'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 *About the Author:
