About the Author

Martyn Pressnell has been an aircraft enthusiast since childhood, becoming an experienced model designer by the age of eighteen.On graduation, he joined Handley Page to train as a professional airframe structures engineer. He went on to work at what is now the University of Hertfordshire, becoming Group Head, Aerospace Engineering, in 1992. For a time he was a CAA-designated Chief Stress Engineer in the airship business. Now retired, Martyn is as busy as ever pursuing model aircraft technology and acting as a consultant in airframe structures to the Engineering Sciences Data Unit, providing information to the aerospace industry worldwide.


'Well written and accessible to readers if varied aerodynamic backgrounds...This book is aimed at modellers and written by a modeller and is thoroughly recommended for anyone wanting to better understand why a designer has chosen a particular section, or if they wish to go on and adapt or design their own model.' Aeromodeller 'Martyn's book is well illustrated throughout, with a large number of clearly annotated drawings and well-produced photographs. It is highly recommended for a wide range of modellers, from those who just want an easy to read understanding of the basic principles of aerofoils, as well as more academic readers who will eagerly absorb the book's wealth of technical information and who will want to work through the mathematical equations and formulas provided.' RC Model World 'In this book Martyn brings together those years of experience with his professional background in full size aerodynamics. Martyn covers in a very readable style both the theory and the practical operation of wing sections.' BMFA News 'This is an airfoil book quite different from most books on this topic. The author has made a genuine effort at presenting this complicated topic in a lucid form, without excessive detail or mathematical requirements, but not omitting essential points.' Free Flight Quarterly 'This book is a practical guide to the aerodynamic principles of the aerofoil and the way that wings produce lift, which is vital to establishing flight.'
