    One thought on “Library-Aeroplanes

    1. Nice collection. I’ve never looked into the early history of aviation in much detail, I look forward to reading most of these over the coming months. Can I suggest also adding a copy of Aerodynamics for Naval Aviators? (http://www.faa.gov/regulations_policies/handbooks_manuals/aviation/media/00-80t-80.pdf)

      The 1920s-era aircraft textbooks lacked a lot of the fundamental understanding of how aircraft really work. It would be a shame for a future group of aviators to have to relearn that the hard way.

      I’ll do some more research as well, but there should be some better simple aircraft designs out there that can be built using basic woodworking that are safer than anything from the early 20th century.

      For example, for a simple observation aircraft one could use a wooden glider, pulled airborne with a ground-based pulley system.
