Hey Everyone,

A good friend of mine. Jack Norris wrote a book on the science behind propellers. The title is: PROPELLERS The First, and Final Explanation. A very detailed and easy to understand book on the best designs for propellers using classic Betz propeller logic and Goldstein, Theodorsen math.

Vance recently met him and purchased a copy of his book at the beginning of the month at Santa Paula Airport. I have a copy too and it's great reading.

Jack's book is actually two books in one. The other side is: The Logic of Flight. The Thinking Man's Way to Fly.

Jack is a bonified Rocket Scientist. He's the designer of the reaction rockets for the Apollo Space Program and was the Technical Director for the Voyager around the world flight.

If anyone is intrested, I can help you purchase Jack's book.
