This book covers the conventional dynamics of rigid aircraft, explores key concepts associated with control configured elastic aircraft, and examines the use of linear and non-linear model-based techniques and their applications to flight control. In addition, it reveals how the principles of modeling and control can be applied to both traditional rigid and modern flexible aircraft.

The updated revision of the well-respected book on analyzing aircraft performance This Second Edition of the bestselling Aircraft Control and Simulation has been expanded and updated to include the latest technological advances in the field. In addition, a new section on basic aerodynamics, aircraft configuration, and static stability makes this complex material more accessible to beginners. This comprehensive guide discusses the fundamental principles and theory of aircraft control and simulation. It also covers modeling and dynamic analysis, stability evaluation, multivariable control theory, and computer-aided design techniques. The inclusion of topics from geodesy and gravitation lays the groundwork for a discussion of the theory for suborbital aircraft now under development. Special features of this new edition include: * New and updated computer calculations using MATLAB(r) * A new section on basic aerodynamics, aircraft configurations, and static stability * Coverage of new MIMO design techniques, robustness theory, and nonlinear design Complete with examples of actual designs from the aircraft industry plus exercise problems, Aircraft Control and Simulation, Second Edition is an excellent reference for anyone involved in the design and modeling of aerospace vehicles and an outstanding text for both undergraduates and graduate students.

The chief virtue is its clarity. I've worked directly in this field since 1986, and wish I'd picked up the 1st edition in 1992 rather than finding the 2nd edition in 2006. Most of the material I've picked up through coursework and on-the-job training, but this book presents a thorough, practical and understandable development of each aspect of aircraft control and simulation. In addition, the 1st chapter provides the basis for incorporating oblate, rotating Earth equations into gravitational and kinematics modeling, which is the reason I bought the book.

Roughly, the book covers:
* Kinematics and Dynamics
* Quaternions
* Properties of Aircraft
* Simulation, Trim, Linearization
* Linear Analysis
-- State Space Models
-- Transfer Functions
-- Frequency Response
* Handling Qualities
* Stability Augmentation
* Autopilots
* Linear Quadratic Regulator
* Model Following Design
* Multivariable Frequency Domain Analysis
* Observers and the Kalman Filter
* Discrete (Digital) Control

NOTE: The 1st chapter of the 2nd Edition is substantially enhanced vs. the 1st chapter of the 1st Edition. Several practical needs are now covered in better detail. Quaternion math is added. An algorithm for converting from Earth-centered Inertial coordinates to Geodetic Latitude and Altitude for an oblate Earth model is now provided. If a flat Earth model is ok to use, the 1st Edition is a very good aircraft controls book. If a rotating oblate Earth model is also required, only the 2nd Edition will do.
I love this book & keep coming back to read it time and time again. I had to read the opening chapter (about rotating frames of reference) a few times before I really understood it - but I think this is only really important if you're more into spaceflight/orbital applications than the simple earth model that is more than good enough for many (most?) aircraft. The code in it is now obviously dated, but it's straightforward to understand what's going on in the old BASIC and convert it to your modern language of choice. The book obviously assumes the reader is happy working with matrices but anyone with an undergrad engineering background should find it well within their capabilities.
I'm a professional Flight Dynamicist and I often find this to be one of my favorite books. I really feel that it treats some modern control concepts really well. Some aspects of flight simulation also receive good treatment. I find though that this book is lacking in the area of aircraft modeling but is great for controls.
This book, in my opinion, is a must have book for any aircraft controls engineer. Very practical so you don't get lost in the theory, and it uses an F16 linear model throughout the book (for example problems) so the numbers mean something as opposed to other books that just have random numbers in the examples. It's also easy to read and it gives matlab and fortran code for most example problems. I recommend the 2nd edition because more informations was added and nothing taken away from the 1st edition.
Used this book as a reference book for a UAV Guidance and Control class. Worked well, but there is a revised and updated version.
Excellent book !
As a flight control engineer I have found it extremely useful.
thinking of buying a Russian Mig Jet. this book has been a big help, cross your fingers.

great product, buy it now.
