"Since the author has always been interested in Aeronautical Engineering, and in particular, rotary-winged-aircraft, the problem of research for aerodynamic improvement of rotary-wing control systems was chosen. This problem was suggested by the Army Aircorps Officials of Wright-Patterson Field of Dayton, Ohio as being a valuable and practical problem for the government. It is also valuable and practical for the author since it follows his general course of undergraduate study and since it fits closely into the field for which he is preparing himself...The requirement with which the author is most concerned is the design system for the producing of forward flight, and following directly on the heels of the, the rotor control system in forward flight"--Introduction, page 2-3.
