Using practical examples and illustrated case studies, supported by all relevant theory, this text offers an accessible introduction which guides the reader through the theory, design, construction and operation of helicopters. Develops fundamental performance and control equations in order to explore the rotor aerodynamic and dynamic characteristics of helicopters. Example calculations and performance predictions, reflecting current practice, demonstrate how to assess a design's feasibility. Includes numerous photos.
