This is the fourth and final collection of flying instructor Helen Krasner's flight test articles, which were originally published in 'Today's Pilot' and some other aviation magazines. This book looks at six relatively unusual helicopters, rarely flown by the average private pilot because they are new, rarely seen in the UK, or for some other reason. They include the Eurocopter EC145, the AgustaWestland Grand, the Bolkow Bo-105, the Schweizer 333, the Mil Mi-2, and the Mil Mi-8. A109, and the Enstrom 480. Each helicopter is described in detail, with an account of Helen's personal experiences of what it is like to fly it for the first time. It is thus much more than a theoretical textbook account. There is also a section on the history of eachthe type, and detailed specifications. A photo of each helicopter is included.
This book is aimed at anyone interested in helicopter flying, whether they already fly helicopters for fun or a career, hope to in the future, fly models, or simply find rotary aircraft fascinating. It would also make an excellent gift for any rotary enthusiast. It contains a great deal of detail, and is around 20,000 words in length.
The first three books in this series, which are already published, are 'Flying Small Helicopters', 'Flying Popular Helicopters', and 'Flying Historic Helicopters'.
