Publisher's Description

Ready to take off? Learn all about aerodynamics and find everything you need to make five fabulous flying machines.

Do you love machines that fly? Can you name some key aviation inventions, from balloons to solar-powered planes? Do you know how flight forces such as gravity, drag, thrust, and lift work? Kids who are raring to make their own flying machines can pore through the theory and history of flight, build five different models — a galactic glider, a deadly dart, a whirlybird helicopter, a single-prop Starlite, and a twin-prop SuperStar — and pick up some expert tips on flying them like an ace. Special features include:
• Tear-out printed sheets for making two paper planes
• Materials for making three propeller-powered machines, including balsa wood body parts, neoprene wings, plastic propellers, wheels, and an elastic band

Editorial Reviews

A brief but lucid introduction to aerodynamics, kitted up with materials for five ultralightweight flying models.Supported by clearly labeled diagrams and cartoon portraits of typical and historical aircraft, the explanations of thrust, lift, roll, yaw, pitch and other considerations that must be taken into account when designing even the simplest fliers and gliders will give young aeronauts a good grounding in the basics.
—Kirkus Reviews

An accessible, edifying entry point into building model planes.
—Publishers Weekly

The models are colorful and easy to build... There’s a reason why airplane books are so popular: Appealing to both boys and girls, they’re educational and offer hours of fun.
