Stick and Rudder is reportedly in its 70th printing. Doing so would no doubt have expedited my journey up the learning curve. It is no secret that aircraft were built and flown well before the theoretical underpinnings of flight were fully understood. Of course, by subsonic flight was well understood, but the misconceptions, falsehoods and bromides from an earlier time were still prevalent in civil aviation. And those things were killing people.
