The Helicopter And How It Flies
by John Fay

This well-illustrated book provides a wealth of information about helicopter technology, yet without the complexity of most textbooks on the subject. Despite the absence of mathematical formulae and technical jargon, the many drawings and clear descriptions will impart a full understanding of just how helicopters fly. The chapters cover the various kinds of helicopters, rotor configurations, control systems, aerodynamic forces, torque and antitorque, autorotation, and so on. The gyroplane is also discussed and compared to the helicopter; plus, a glossary defines many rotary-wing terms. 105 pages, paperback.
