Art of the Helicopter by John Watkinson

By John Watkinson

the fashionable helicopter is a cosmopolitan equipment which merges a stunning variety of applied sciences jointly. This wide selection of disciplines is among the fascinations of the helicopter, however it can also be makes a whole figuring out difficult.

these trying to find an knowing of the helicopter will locate The paintings of the Helicopter priceless. John Watkinson techniques each topic linked to the helicopter from first rules and builds up in a sincerely defined logical series utilizing simple English and transparent diagrams, warding 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. when the contents of the publication are expressed in uncomplicated language there's no oversimplification and the content material is predicated on proven physics and approved concept. the coed of helicopter know-how or aerodynamics will locate right here a concise creation major clearly to extra complex textbooks at the subject.

* Designed to counterpoint the guide of PPL(H) flying education on the way to support helicopter pilots in-training to accomplish their "wings".
* transparent and straightforward diagrams relief verbal causes to supply a simple to appreciate account of ways helicopters are made, how they fly and the way to fly them.
* the one booklet to hide all of the features of helicopter layout, manufacture and function in a single volume.
