The utility and benefits of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are emerging and being recognized across the aviation industry. While this technology is not new, the ability to support domestic public and private operators is becoming better understood and opening up new uses to government organizations and commercial enterprise. Analysis of the unmanned aviation market indicates that small UAS (sUAS) will become the most prevalent and affordable form of unmanned aircraft available, featuring technology developed by contributors ranging from DIY and hobby model aircraft communities to defense contracting. This book will help readers understand what a drone or UAS is, what forms are available (including multirotor, fixed-wing, and hybrid types), to make well-informed decisions regarding purchase and use. Readers will learn how sUAS and their various configuration options can be used to address or support evolving business needs. Ultimately, readers will have enough information to formulate a plan to acquire necessary certification approvals and operate sUAS in a safe, efficient, and effectivemanner. Beginning with the history of UAS and ending with how to prepare for the future of this fast-paced and innovative industry, this book contains descriptions of typical sUAS architecture, related technology, common uses, and suggested safety practices, while also providing a narrative to help you determine the most appropriate path forward through complex legal, business, operational, and support considerations. Understanding how these pieces fit together, from the technical and legal perspectives, will shape your own strategy for the safe, efficient, and effective use of this "(r)evolutionary" technology. The authors developed this book to share critical background, concepts, guidance, and lessons learned from their collective experience as researchers, operators, and academic instructors to dispel common myths and provide a starting point to explore how sUAS can be applied to solve challenges and support economic pursuits. Written for experienced aviators, as well as those new to aviation and operating in the National Airspace System (NAS). Illustrated extensively throughout, each chapter concludes with review questions for classroom and self-study use; glossary and index included. This book provides a solid foundation for keeping up with this fast moving and exciting aviation field.

Applied Engineering Failure Analysis: Theory and Practice provides a point of reference for engineering failure analysis (EFA) cases, presenting a compilation of case studies covering a 35-year period, from the 1970s to 2012. This period spans the era from the time when slide rules were used routinely for engineering calculations, and when hard-copy photographs taken by film cameras were pasted onto typewritten sheets to make reports, to the present time when all these functions have become much less onerous through computer assistance. The cases are drawn from such diverse fields as mechanical engineering, metallurgy, mining, civil/structural engineering, electrical power systems, and radiation damage; the last two topics are quite scarce in current publications. It includes theoretical content that deals with useful topics in basic theory, material properties, failure mechanisms, EFA methodology, and applications. It provides high-quality illustrations throughout, which greatly helps to promote the understanding of the failure characteristics described. This book offers an integrated approach that serves as a useful first reference in the above topics, for undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as for practicing engineers. The book provides a hands-on approach to EFA, which helps the user to develop an understanding of potential failure situations, to explore the consequences, and to better understand how to solve similar problems; it also helps users to develop their own techniques for most other engineering failure problems. The authors include a section on technical report writing, which will assist failure investigators in getting their findings across. They also present simple engineering calculations that may serve as illustrative examples, and typical problems and solutions are included at the end of each chapter.

For all engineers and practitioners, it is essential to have a fundamental understanding of cost structure, estimating cash flows, and evaluating alternative projects and designs on an economic basis. Engineering Economics for Aviation and Aerospace provides the tools and techniques necessary for engineers to economically evaluate their projects and choices. The focus of this book is on a comprehensive understanding of the theory and practical applications of engineering economics. It explains and demonstrates the principles and techniques of engineering economics and financial analysis as applied to the aviation and aerospace industries. Time value of money, interest factors, and spreadsheet functions are used to evaluate the cash flows associated with a single project or multiple projects. The alternative engineering economics tools and techniques are utilized in separate chapters to evaluate the attractiveness of a single project or to select the best of multiple alternatives. Most of the engineering economics and financial mathematics books available in the market take either a pure theoretical approach or offer limited applications. This book incorporates both approaches, providing students of aviation and industrial economics, as well as practitioners, with the necessary mathematical knowledge to evaluate alternatives on an economic basis.

This ACS book from the FAA lists the standards and requirements for the Remote Pilot Certificate, issued for operating drones and small unmanned aircraft systems in the National Airspace System. The new Airman Certification Standards are ideal for checkride preparation, and will help applicants develop an understanding of how knowledge, risk management, and skill elements work together for safe performance of each required task they may be asked to perform during the checkride. For instructors, the ACS will serve as a guide for teaching and training an applicant everything they need to know for certification and safe operation within the National Airspace System. Designated Pilot Examiners (DPEs) will use the ACS to assess an applicant's understanding, knowledge, risk management considerations, and performance of each task. As always, ASA delivers authentic, accurate, and reliable FAA documents exactly as provided by the FAA. One noticeable change is that the FAA has adapted the size and format of the ACS so that it lists everything an applicant needs to know, consider, and do in order to pass both the knowledge test and the practical test for a certificate or rating.

Since the first days of rivalry between the Wright Brothers and Glenn Curtiss, aircraft manufacturers have been vying for lucrative military aircraft contracts and competing for prized long-term production runs. As a result, many advanced and now legendary aircraft have been designed, built, and flown in every generation of aviation development. Focusing on the Cold War era, this book shows readers how crucial fly-off competitions have been to the development of America's military air arsenal. This book not only explains in detail how fly-off competitions are conducted, it shows the reader what both competing aircraft designs looked like during their trials, and then what the losing aircraft would have looked like in operational markings had it actually won. Described in vivid detail are the specific aircraft and how they fared, as well as the inside political maneuvering and subterfuge involved in often-controversial aircraft contract awards. Beginning with the Boeing B-47 Stratojet's decisive victory over rival Convair and Martin designs and ending with today's advanced unmanned aerial marvels, this book covers every era of Post-World War II aviation. Author Erik Simonsen uses the wonders of modern digital photography to create highly believable images of aviation's most tantalizing 'might have beens.'
