  1. Quick view PRINCIPLES OF HELICOPTER FLIGHT

    PRINCIPLES OF HELICOPTER FLIGHT

    $24.95

    This book explains the complexities of flight in clear, easy to understand terms and is the type of manual the helicopter industry has waited a long time to see. It provides background knowledge as to why the helicopter flies and, more importantly, why it sometimes doesn't. It explains the aerodynamic factors associated with rotor stalls, mast bumping, wind effect, and many other important aspects pilots are required to know. Technical knowledge and sound handling are the ingredients that make a safe pilot. For the student and experienced pilot, this book is one of the keys to helicopter flight.
    This Second Edition benefits from additional discussion of the NOTAR system and strakes, as well as frequently misunderstood principles of airspeed and high altitude operations. The book also concludes with a multiple-choice practice examination; used in conjunction with quizzes for each chapter, the reader can test their grasp of helicopter aerodynamics. Learn More
