"I never felt that I had a good formulation of (Design) until I read the introduction of Daniel Raymer's Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach. Raymer... implies that design involves far more than drawing a pretty shape and then shoe-horning people, engines, and structural members into it. It involves art. Raymer's book... takes a practical, rather than academic, view of the development of a design. It covers not only aerodynamics, stability, and stress analysis...but also the interstitial stuff about general arrangement and the interplay of competing design considerations that are really the grout that holds a design together. —Peter Garrison, in Flying, May 1997 Reliable—as always from AIAA, the best source of quality aircraft technical literature.—Craig Roberts, Roberts Sport Aircraft Outstanding Reference—more homebuilders/designers should purchase this text! Keep making your books available to the EAA!!— Brad Knapp, EAA It was as if this book was written specifically for me and brought closure to theoretical concepts with understanding.—James"
