Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello people!

I'm a physicist (Phd student) with a good Physics background. I'd like to get some very good book about aviation in terms of Physics and Engineering. It shouldn't be very hard and detailed book since I'm not an engineer but at the same time it should contain a lot of "science". I'm interesting in all stuff related to construction of aircraft and its flight from the point of view of physicist or engineer. It would be great if the book contains a lot of examples of real general aviation (as Boeing or Airbus).

Can you recommend something to me? I'd appreciate that!

I'll try to get the book you will recommend from amazon.

Aerodynamics for Naval Aviators is more advanced and uses more math than most of the other pilot training books but is still kept in the realm of understandability for pilots.

Here is a navy training manual:

I think the first one is a better book in general, but it has been superceded in terms of classroom use by the second link (pdf). Better info IMHO in the original however.

Wikipedia: Aviation is the design, development, production, operation, and use of aircraft, especially heavier-than-air aircraft.

That's a wide topic. For automobiles it would be everything from Bendix springs to operating the rear seat entertainment unit.
