Durch meine Praxis in der deutschen Luftfahrtindustrie sind meine Ansichten beeindruckt vom modernen deutschen Flugzeugbau, so daß ich auch den Übungsstellen der Luftwaffe für die konstruktiven Lehrgänge viel zu bringen hoffe." [...]
Gerhard Otto lehrte am Lehrstuhl für Aeromechanik und Flugtechnik der Technischen Hochschule Hannover. Ihm unterstand unter anderem die Praxiserprobung. Mit diesem umfangreichen und mit über four hundred Bildern versehenen Werk, das Grundlagencharakter hat,
gelang es ihm, die theoretischen Erkenntnisse der damals noch recht neuen Aluminium-Leichtbauweise, bei der Deutschland technologisch führend battle, allgemeinverständlich darzustellen. Wer sich heute für den Flugzeugbau jener Zeit interessiert, findet hier umfassende Informationen, die keine Frage offen lassen.
