Overview

Written from a pilot's perspective, this unique book provides a comprehensive overview of helicopter flying. It provides an unparalleled insight into all aspects of the modern helicopter, from turbine engines to Automatic Flight Control System, including descriptions of phenomena not explained elsewhere.

The book is arranged in two parts:

Beginner's section which covers the fundamentals of helicopter theory, performance and flying. Numerous examples of how different fundamentals interact, as seen from the cockpit, are presented.

Advanced section covers material relevant to those who already know how to fly helicopters but are interested in understanding more about the machine. This section uses many of the chapter headings of the first part but goes into much greater detail. The material on autorotations is the most comprehensive in any book on helicopters and the viewpoint is always from the cockpit.
