Riassunto: This is the world's most popular book on amateur-built gyroplanes. It introduces these unique helicopter-like aircraft that have become popular worldwide for sport flying. Thousands of pilots now take to the sky in these small, maneuverable aircraft that they themselves have built.
This book tells what gyroplanes are like, how they fly, and how to learn to fly them. It contains a section on selecting the best gyroplane for your individual needs. It discusses frankly the risks of flying these aircraft and provides information on flying safety. There's a pilot report that lets you feel a real flight in a gyroplane and a troubleshooting guide for beginning pilots.
This book contains hard-to-get information on where the gyroplane came from and current popular models of gyroplanes. It has many photographs and illustrations.
Author Paul Bergen Abbott is a veteran gyroplane pilot who recently received the Gyrocopter Pioneer Award from Hofstra University for his aviation journalism, which includes this book, plus another book, "Understanding the Gyroplane," along with other books and magazine articles, and experience as editor/publisher of Rotorcraft magazine. Abbott is also the editor of a book by Igor Bensen, the inventor of the Gyrocopter, "A Dream of Flight."
Abbott wrote the original edition of "The Gyroplane Flight Manual" in 1977 and has continually updated and expanded it. This is the seventh edition of this popular book.
