This book tackles the understanding of Rotary-Wing aerodynamics with contributing text on the subject of Physics for Safer Flying in a helicopter. While the differences between flying fixed wing and helis may seem obvious at first, there are numerous helicopter-flight scenarios where taking the seemingly logical course of corrective action will only make things worse!.
Knowledge is power. Arm yourself with the information contained in this book for a safer and smarter helicopter flying experience.

"Have perused it in spare moments, and must say, I'm impressed! It sure beats the pants [out] of the Wagtendonk and being just a tad more understandable. Did I say a tad, well I think it is MORE than a tad more readable!"

CFI, Central Helicopter Training Academy, Ontario
