This highly regarded textbook presents the entire process of aircraft conceptual designfrom requirements definition to initial sizing, configuration layout, analysis, sizing, and trade studiesin the same manner seen in industry aircraft design groups. Interesting and easy to read, the book has more than 800 pages of design methods, illustrations, tips, explanations, and equations, and extensive appendices with key data essential to design. It is the required design text at numerous universities around the world, and is a favorite of practicing design engineers.

"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"
