by R. Randall Padfield

For both beginners and experienced pilots seeking a non-technical, easy-to-understand, yet complete helicopter guide, here's the manual to get! Learning To Fly Helicopters—2nd Edition provides a full discussion of helicopter aerodynamics, control systems, flight maneuvers, hovering, autorotation, safety precautions, and emergency procedures. This book not only explains flight principles, but actually conveys what it feels like to fly a helicopter. Also included is a chapter on what you'll need to know when taking FAA tests. Plus, photos and specifications are presented on most of today's popular helicopters. This up-to-date edition features new information on glass cockpits, turbine engines, IFR flying, the latest FAA test standards for a private helicopter pilot certificate, emergency and safety procedures, how to choose a flight school, career opportunities, and much much more! Filled with photos, drawings, graphs and tables. 544 pages, paperback.
