Overview

While doing her flight instructor course some years ago, well known helicopter instructor and writer Helen Krasner kept an on-going diary of the highs and lows, the difficulties and successes, her disappointments - and the eventual favourable outcome. The diary was published at the time on a wellknown aviation website, and had an increasing following for a number of weeks.

Helen has now decided to publish that diary in book form. Although a very personal account, it provides useful insights into a world few know about. It is not only about helicopter flying, teaching and learning, but also provides lessons on more general themes such as success and failure, confidence, and picking yourself up after a setback. Thus it should be of interest to everyone with even a passing interest in helicopters and/or flying, and particularly to those who have a pilot's licence or intend to gain one at some time in the future.

The diary is over 9,000 words in length, and the events described take place over a period of around six weeks.
