A new chapter, on “Using the back of an envelope”, shows how to make “ballpark” technical judgements. Mathematics – which general readers may skip – is the minimum needed to work out common sense shapes, aimed at meeting the certification requirements of the three world airworthiness authorities: Land and seaplanes are included, from microlight and commuter, to a seat surface-effect ekranoplan regional transport, to satisfy specific markets.


His test flying spanned 35 years wirplane more than types of aircraft, first as an experimental test pilot at Farnborough; then 20 years as airworthiness certification test pilot for the UK Civil Aviation Authority on light aeroplanes and seaplanes, before turning freelance.

His company specializes in cross-fertilization between aircraft and marine craft design and operation.
