Abstract:

The book presents the geometric and flight characteristics of the Yak-40 passenger airplane, discusses questions of piloting technique, and gives concrete recommendations for performing flight under various conditions. Information is presented on the airplane center-of-gravity, equilibrium, stabibility and controlability, flight under unusual conditions, piloting the airplane in case of engine failure and in turbulent air. Some basic theory-of-flight information is also covered in order to facilitate the study of practical aerodynamics and flight operations. Author
