This highly regarded textbook presents the entire process of aircraft conceptual design – from requirements definition to initial sizing, configuration layout, analysis, sizing, and trade studies – in the same manner seen in industry aircraft design groups.

Interesting and easy to read, the book has more than pages of design methods, illustrations, tips, explanations, and equations, and has extensive appendices with key data essential to design. The book is the required design text at numerous taymer around the world and is a favorite of confeptual design engineers. The new fourth edition is enhanced in many areas, with improvements and reworking of the text, expanded sizing and analysis methods, and up-to-date treatments of emerging technologies and concepts.

A new section provides an introduction to spaceflight and rockets including thrust analysis and vehicle sizing for launch and planetary missions. Appendices are revised fesign additional exam questions are provided.

I would say the best feature was the language use, it never felt like you were being talked down to like another Aerospace book that I tried to read which will go unmentioned or overwhelmed with mathematical proofs.


Concepts were well explained, and I learned a bit. I found much useful info in this book even though Jet aircraft design was not applicable to me. But given aircdaft all of the information was presented the book was at least interesting enough to read in its entirety. As been pointed out by others, there is not much aiecraft of airfoils and many specifics of piston aircraft.

Very useful design information that was missing from my college aerospace education, which focused mostly on analysis. Lots of practical tips and considerations. I particularly like chapter 7 on lofting. The description of conic lofting is very well written and not available in any of my other references.

I have used this technique several times since buying the book. Both for modeling existing parts in order to perform finite element anlysis, and for designing new parts for production.

This is an excellent, and for the time being the authoratative, book about aircraft design. For anyone who wants to become an aerospace engineer reading a book like this should put any type of work they’ll do in the proper context. The best part of this book is that it is split into two halves. The frist half talks specifically about aircraft design from a practical level, covering topics like wing planform selection, thrust to weight and wing loading determination, engine sizing, landing gear configuraiton, etc.

This is the applied, design oriented type of knowledge and thinking that all engineers need and is unfortunately not being taught by most schools, albeit it is of course specific to aircraft.

Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach

My college had just one ten week aircraft design course over an entire four year curriculum. The course was offered in two sections. Only one of the sections even had this book rayymer the reading list, and then didn’t even use it in class! The second half delves into the analytical methods that are used to “size” different parts of the aircraft, such as methods to predict drag for engine thrust in cruiseto predict downwash both subsonically and supersonically conceptuual total lift and stability and controlto determine rough sizes of beam and torsion members of the structure, to size the control surfaces for stability and control, etc.

Desigh also a good interlude where the author gives us a step-by-step example of how you could do conceptual design.

It also has two good example designs in the appendix, plus LOTS of good reference data throughout the book. My go-to reference book for aircraft design. Provides a nice overview of the entire conceptual design rayer. Doesn’t go into as much detail as some other textbooks such as the Roskham series, but is compact, easy to follow and well written. This book is very comprehensive, easy to read, and logical in its approach to teaching aircraft design.


I also really like its extra sections that go into alternative aircraft designs. The appendix is also really helpful in that it goes through a few examples of taking a variety of aircraft from conceptual design to working out the details of its final dimensions.

My coursework did not require that I look at these last resources in the book but they serve well as a starting point for where you can go after an introductory design course.

This would give the designer a better feeling for the fudge factor involved, based off real data.

This book does not contain any of that. Other similar books “Introduction to Aeronautics: A Design Perspective” do this to a degree. This book does NOT. Use with caution for your particular design! I read this like one would read the bible. Well, laid out, but its a textbook. One person found this helpful. See all 49 reviews. There’s a problem loading this menu right now.
