'It is refreshing to see the publication of a book which describes the many aspects of modern civil jet aircraft design. It is the value of the present book that it emphasises that design in general and aircraft design in particular encompasses much more than performing the required computations. Civil Jet Aircraft Design fully deserves its place among the relatively small number of modern books on aircraft design.' Aircraft Design 'The scope is comprehensive.......the chapter sequence is logical...the figures are clear and simple and relate wll to the text....should be on the shelf of all aero engineering students.' The Aeronautical Journal, May 2000 "Written by experts in their fields...highly recommended." Air International.
