|Introduction to Aerospace Engineering
The book was written in 2009 by Associate Professor Dr. Octavian Thor Pleter. It is written for the future aerospace engineers, in an attempt to capture both the complexity and the fascination of this cutting edge profession, in a holistic, multidisciplinary manner. The book also serves as an introduction in the disciplines studied in the ”Air Navigation - Air Transport Engineering” programs of studies. The programs, started in 2009, benefit from a modern and pragmatic curriculum, developed by the AirNav Board.
