Guides for learning aeronautics

  1. Sep 19, 2013 #1
    I'm very interested in aeronautics and I wanna learn it as a hobby (maybe I'll even make RC planes) but I really don't know where to start from
    So if anyone could guide me and tell me where to start from that would be much appreciated
    Thanks in advance

    If you want just a general overview to get you started then Introduction to Flight by Anderson would be a good place. It isn't cheap though, unfortunately. Maybe try and procure a used copy somewhere?

    I'll second (albeit a bit tardily) the recommendation for Anderson's Introduction to Flight. It's a good book.

    If you want something more on aerodynamics, Anderson's Fundamentals of Aerodynamics is a good book.

    I'll look into it when I'm done with the introduction to aeronautics first
