5.0 out of 5 stars A highly readable and practical introduction to helicopters, 1 Dec 2008
By

This review is from: The Helicopter Pilot's Companion: A Manual for Helicopter Enthusiasts (Paperback)
For those that think helicopters are an unattainable dream think again. This book strips away all the mystery and explains in down to earth language what is involved in flying rotary aircraft. More importantly it explains where to start in an activity that may seem quite daunting.

All aspects of helicopter flying for the prospective private pilot are covered with lots of real examples and tales that make this much more than a dry aviation text.

Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Helicopter Pilots Companion: A Manual fo Helicopter Enthusiasts, 23 Sep 2011
This review is from: The Helicopter Pilot's Companion: A Manual for Helicopter Enthusiasts (Paperback)
An excellent book for the layman ,well written by somebody who really know's their stuff.
All important information put down in a logical sequence including the explanation of the
more baffling scientific stuff on how helicopters actually stay in the air. Undertaken in
an easily read and informative manner. Essential reading for anyone considering taking a
first time trial flight, as you'll have a head start taking in all the new information the
instructor is bombarding you with!

5.0 out of 5 stars Budding Pilot, 26 Sep 2011
This review is from: The Helicopter Pilot's Companion: A Manual for Helicopter Enthusiasts (Paperback)
I took an hour taster with a helicopter school first. It was a birthday gift from my wife. Although I found it all very confusing, the feeling of exhilaration when finished was immense. I actually did hover and hover taxi. I had never even sat in one before.
Then I read this book and all became clear. It's a good read and very informative.
