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

Contains:-

  • Newtons laws of motion and their relevancy to helicopter flight
  • How airflow dictates the function and design of aerofoils, rotor blades and flight controls
  • All the lift and drag "forces in flight" you'll encounter while flying and how to respond safely
  • Types of stability, ground effect, translational lift, tail rotor drift and correcting them effectively
  • A study of demanding scenarios, such as auto-rotations, vortrex ring and dynamic rollover
  • How types of power and aircraft and load weight and balance effect all of the above + much more
