Overview

This book is based on the aviation articles which Helen Krasner wrote for the magazine Flight Training News during the years 2011 to 2012. It begins with an article from Helen’s early days of learning to fly, My Learning-to-Fly Nightmare, which should provide encouragement for anyone who is struggling with the PPL course. The next three articles are about topics of general interest to private pilots. Then come a group of helicopter related articles, but these should still provide food for thought for anyone interested in any type of flying. The last chapter answers the thought provoking issue, Why People Give up Flying. Altogether there are over 22,000 words of flying related information.

Helen Krasner has been flying for many years; she holds a Commercial Helicopter Pilot's Licence and until recently had an Instructor's Rating. She also has a Private Pilot’s Licence for Aeroplanes, and around 1200 hours flying time in total. Until recently she worked as a freelance helicopter instructor, flying mainly R22s and R44s.

Helen writes about helicopters and other aviation-related subjects for a number of publications, and she is also the former Newsletter Editor for the BWPA (British Women Pilots’ Association). She was nominated for one of the Aerospace Journalist of the Year Awards in 2004, for an article about Flying Helicopters in Russia. She has published two books about helicopter flying – The Helicopter Pilot’s Companion (Crowood Press 2008), and Flying Helicopters: a Companion to the PPL(H) (Crowood Press 2011). Helen has also written and published a book about a five thousand mile walk around Britain which she undertook some years ago (Midges, Maps, and Muesli).

In addition Helen has published 12 ebooks, mainly about different aspects of flying - look out for them.
