Trade Paperback + PDF eBook "bundle" version: Trade paperback book comes with code to download the eBook from ASA's website.

This comprehensive textbook explains the aerodynamics of helicopter flight as well as helicopter maneuvers, going beyond the strictly "how-to" type of aviation manual. Helicopter pilots need to thoroughly understand the consequences of their actions and base them upon sound technical knowledge; this textbook explains why the helicopter flies and even more importantly, why it sometimes does not.

Beginning with aerodynamics, each step of the process is fully illustrated and thoroughly explained—from the physics of advanced operations to helicopter design and performance—providing helicopter pilots with a solid foundation upon which to base their in-flight decisions. Containing discussions on the NOTAR (no tail rotor) system, strakes, principles of airspeed and high-altitude operations, operations on sloping surfaces, and sling operations, this revised edition also includes the latest procedures Federal Aviation Administration.
