As a student of Dr. McCormick, throughout my undergraduate and current graduate studies, this book has been very helpful.

As a student of Dr. Yes, the information is out of date, but the theories developed still hold true to current technology.

Barnes W. McCormick, J. However, let us assume a priori that Be and (6- Be) are small angles. Also, except for very high performance and V/STOL (vertical or short takeoff and landing) airplanes, the thrust for most airplanes is only a fraction of the weight.

McCormick, Barnes W. SUMMARY.

An extremely practical overview of V/STOL (vertical/short takeoff and landing) aerodynamics, this volume offers a presentation of general theoretical and applied aerodynamic principles, covering propeller and helicopter rotor theory for both the static and forward flight cases. Both a text for students and a reference for professionals, the book can be used for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses. Numerous detailed figures, plus exercises. 1967 edition. Preface. Appendix. Index.

This is a good textbook on aerodynamics of V/STOL flight. Yes, it has not been revised since the original printing in 1966, but the basic methods and experimental results still apply, just like they did then. The book is aimed very much at someone with a background in aeronautical engineering. It is not for the casual reader, and has nothing about the history of V/STOL flight
As an aero engineer working on the design of VTOL airplanes, its exactly what I was looking for. I give it a 4 star rating just because I dont think any textbook is worth 5 stars! ;-)

The perfect companion or foil for the much more voluminous and complex Aerodynamics of Propulsion by Kuechemann.

McCormick has a gift for making seemingly complicated problems in analysis of propulsion aerodynamics, if not simple then at least tractable. This is my second copy - I gave away the first to a friend who needed it more than I did at the time. Now I find I can't do without my own copy.

As a student of Dr. McCormick, throughout my undergraduate and current graduate studies, this book has been very helpful. Yes, the information is out of date, but the theories developed still hold true to current technology. The book was developed from notes and some internal technical reports he wrote while working for Boeing Vertol in the late 1950s, and dhe first edition (hardcover) is riddled with errors. The more practical reference is definitely the republished and corrected paperback edition released in the late 90s. This book is currently out of print, and the publisher doesn't plan on releasing it again, so snagging a used copy is the only way to go.

If you a student in the Aerospace department at Penn State, and taking Dr. McCormick's classes, I would highly recommend purchasing this book, if only for a reference to what he teaches in his classes. It comes in handy if he forgets to mention things in lecture.

As a practicing engineer, it can be a handy, if somewhat limited reference. Some other sources to check, are Johnson's Helicopter Theory and Leishman's Principles of Helicopter Aerodynamics.

If you're looking for some useful information on VTOL aircraft, keep looking. McCormick derives hundreds of equations, making it difficult to establish which, if any, are relevant or useful. And good luck finding the meaning of the symbols in the equations, which may have been defined several chapters earlier. This book would be best left in the classroom where an instructor could guide the student through the theory. This isn't the practical, nuts and bolts information for the hardcore VTOL enthusiast or designer. All information refers to 1960's or earlier aircraft. The V-22 is only mentioned in the preface of the new edition stating that some of the theory applies. The book has some useful information, but it's not what I hoped it would be.
