Abstract:

The book is dedicated to the draft designing of a comparatively new type of aircraft possessing the takeoff and landing properties of helicopters and other flight characteristics, peculiar to aircraft. The characteristics of their aerodynamic configuations basic parameters, gravimetric characteristics, and designs with various power plant compositions are examined. Turboprop TP and turbojet engines TJ ordinary and special were used in the composition of the latter both as sustainer and hoisting, and as composite engines accomplishing in one unit the role of the first and the second. Methods are given for calculating the specific vertical takeoff and langing aircraft VTOL processes of flight, for example the transfer from vertical flight to horizontal flight and conversely.
