Description

This comprehensive book is aimed at all those who are undertaking the helicopter Private Pilot's License course, those who have qualified recently, and those who are planning to learn to fly helicopters in the future.  The book follows the PPL(H) syllabus as it is taught, and provides a detailed account of each flying exercise.  The student is able to read about a lesson in advance before attempting it with an instructor.  However, the book does not aim to be a technical manual and it is designed to be used in conjunction with a helicopter textbook and instructor's briefings.
