- Pasquale Sforza, Pasquale M. Sforza received his PhD from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn in 1965. He has taught courses related to commercial airplane design at the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn and the University of Florida. His previous books include Theory of Aerospace Propulsion (Butterworth-Heinemann, 2011).
Commercial Airplane Design Principles is a succinct, focused text covering all the information required at the preliminary stage of aircraft design: initial sizing and weight estimation, fuselage design, engine selection, aerodynamic analysis, stability and control, drag estimation, performance analysis, and economic analysis.
The text places emphasis on making informed choices from an array of competing options, and developing the confidence to do so.
