these looking for an figuring out of the helicopter will locate The artwork of the Helicopter necessary. John Watkinson ways each topic linked to the helicopter from first rules and builds up in a basically defined logical series utilizing simple English and transparent diagrams, fending off pointless mathematics.

Technical phrases and buzzwords are outlined and acronyms are spelled out. Misnomers, myths and previous other halves stories (for there are lots surrounding helicopters) are disposed of. while the contents of the ebook are expressed in trouble-free language there isn't any oversimplification and the content material relies on confirmed physics and permitted conception. the coed of helicopter know-how or aerodynamics will locate right here a concise advent top evidently to extra complex textbooks at the subject.

* Designed to counterpoint the guideline of PPL(H) flying education with a purpose to help helicopter pilots in-training to accomplish their "wings".
* transparent and easy diagrams reduction verbal causes to supply a simple to appreciate account of the way helicopters are made, how they fly and the way to fly them.
* the one e-book to hide the entire elements of helicopter layout, manufacture and function in a single volume.
