Training a helicopter pilot is lengthy and intense, since flying helicopters is notoriously difficult, even for experienced fixed-wing pilots. This book comprehensively covers the subject from the pilot's perspective, and is arranged in two parts. The first part is devoted to basic helicopter theory and practice, and includes numerous examples of how the different fundamentals interact as seen from the cockpit. The section on auto-rotations, in particular, is fully comprehensive. The second part of the book, called the Advanced Helicopter Pilot's Manual, covers more advanced theory, of interest to the commercial or military pilot or to helicopter flight instructors. The author adopts a simple, humorous, although thorough approach, and the book should satisfy the technical requirements of any college course on rotor-wing aircraft, and should also be of interest to amateurs and enthusiasts, particularly radio control helicopter pilots.
