Technical knowledge and sound handling are key ingredients for a safe pilot

Helicopter pilots need to thoroughly understand the consequences of their actions, and base them upon sound technical knowledge. Principles of Helicopter Flight, 2nd Edition provides a foundation by explaining why the helicopter flies and, more importantly, why it sometimes doesn’t. It examines the aerodynamic factors associated with rotor stalls, mast bumping, and wind effect, as well as maneuvering flight to include the hover, forward flight, flare, and autorotation. Helicopter design and components, performance, and weight and balance are covered, along with special techniques such as different types of takeoffs and landings, operating on sloping surfaces, sling operations, mountain flying, and helicopter icing.
