The FAA recently issued a new edition of the Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge (FAA-H-8083-25A). This is the "private pilot handbook," but it contains much useful information, including an overview of basic aerodynamics, and it’s one of the core references for FAA knowledge and practical tests.
The link above takes you to the FAA Web site, where you can download the 19 PDF documents that comprise the book.
To make the volume a little easier to read and search, I’ve merged the files into three parts and posted them in one of my SkyDrive folders (alas, SkyDrive doesn’t allow single files larger than 50MB; when combined, all of the new files total about 110MB).
