The Development of Piston Aero Engines
From the Wrights to Microlights: A century of Evolution and still a Power to be Reckoned with
Gunston, Bill
rare book!
Updated second edition

Aviation has always been prone to the whims of fashion, and the field of piston aero engines has had its fair share of wrong turnings, dead ends and premature dismissals caused by people jumping to conclusions. Here, from one of Britain's most respected aviation writers, is a lively, informative account of the history, development and application of these remarkable power plants, how they work - and why they sometimes don't - supported by over 150 excellent illustrations. The final chapter, covering the wealth of small engines available today, is a must for anyone with an interest in homebuilt and light aircraft.
