THE HELICOPTER: History, Piloting & How It Flies Rs.250.00/-

$0.00

Since it was first published in 1954, this book, written by a former test pilot and instructor at Westland Helicopters, has been the standard popular work. Now this completely-revised fourth edition brings the subject right up-to-date and includes an important new section on avionics.

The book covers the subject in four main sections: first, the various types of rotor¬craft are defined, and the behaviour of the aircraft and its rotors under different con¬ditions are explained; second, the tech¬niques of piloting and the problems that face the trainee; the third section traces the helicopter's history from the ancient Chinese to the present day, including the X Wing Project, Battlefield Survivability and the BERP rotor; and the final section outlines avionic systems as they affect the helicopter, from automatic: pilots, control systems, instruments and navigation systems to flight management and de¬icing systems.

'Warmly recommended as giving the fundamentals in clear understandable language and with extremely good illus¬trations' by the Journal of the Royal Aeronautical Society, this new completely up-to-date revised edition will ensure the book retains its place as the classic popular work on the subject for beginners and the more experienced alike.
