    • Sailplane Design – New 2 nd Edition
      • A very complete and thorough "bible" on sailplane design for students and designers. 
      • It is similar in concept to the book “Fundamentals of Sailplane Design", but (according to the author) this book takes the idea farther and includes practical design examples.
      • Changes in this 2nd Edition
        • This version has a smaller physical size - making it lighter and reducing shipping costs
        • The "meat" of the book is the same as the first version but the chapter related to the winglet design has been rewritten by the author in a pragmatic way.  In character with the rest of the book.  As a consequence, the writing of Maughmer has been substituted with the Chapter written by Mr. Pajno.
