From the pioneering glider flights of Otto Lilienthal (1891) to the complicated avionics of today’s Airbus, aeronautical examine in Germany has been on the leading edge of the beginning and development of aeronautics. at the party of the centennial commemoration of the Wright Brother’s first powered flight (December 1903), this English–language version of ‘Aeronautical learn in Germany’ recounts and celebrates the significant contributions made in Germany to the discovery and ongoing improvement of plane.

This richly illustrated and authoritative quantity constitutes a such a lot well timed and big evaluation of the an important contributions to the principles and development of aeronautics made via German scientists and engineers.
