Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Compiled by the Federal Aviation Administration, this handbook is the ultimate technical manual for any flight instructor who must teach inexperienced students how to fly helicopters. Whether your course ends in students receiving private, commercial, or flight instruction pilot certificates, this book is more than just essential reading—its the best possible study guide available, and its information can be life-saving. This handbook conforms to flight instructor pilot training and certification concepts established by the FAA. In authoritative and easy-to-understand language, here are explanations of general aerodynamics and the aerodynamics of flight, navigation, communication, flight controls, flight maneuvers, emergencies, and more.

Also included is an extensive glossary of terms ensuring that even the most technical language can be easily understood. The Helicopter Instructor's Handbook is an indispensable text for any flight instructor who wants his or her students to operate a helicopter safely in a range of conditions. Chapters cover a variety of subjects including helicopter components, weight and balance, basic flight maneuvers, advanced flight maneuvers, emergencies and hazards, aeronautical decision making, night operations, and many more. With full-color illustrations detailing every chapter, this is a one-of-a-kind resource for instructors and their future pilots.
