Bill Gunston takes a thorough look at the theory, history, development and application of piston aero engines, from those used by the Wright Brothers for their pioneering flights right up to the small engines fitted to micro lights today. Illustrated throughout, this classic aviation title is available in paperback for the first time. This is not simply a technical textbook listing various engines, but instead discusses the principles, involved in the workings and evolution of these power plants, chronicles their many different applications and ponders what the future may hold.
