Aerospace Aircraft mechanics literature

  1. Feb 11, 2012 #1

    I am a student of mechanical engineering, but I always loved aircrafts, and I want to get involved with aerospace engineering as soon as possible.

    Could you please suggest any good books about basics of flight mechanics on university level?

    I googled it a bit, but there are so many I don't know where to start...
    So I am looking for a book that's good to begin with?
    Maybe even books for Private Pilot License Theoretical Exam?

    Thanks! =)

    "Introduction to Flight" and "Fundamentals of Aerodynamics", both by Anderson.

    "Flight" is a sophomore level text, and "Aerodynamics" is a Junior level text.
