3.0 out of 5 stars Illustrations are messed up Jan. 3 2013
By K. Beaulieu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book - especially the perfomance sections. Unfortunately the illustrations throughout the book are zoomed in and cut off, making them useless. It looks like a publishing error.
5.0 out of 5 stars Well written book for all helicopter pilots Dec 16 2013
By R. Randall Padfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A highly experienced pilot, test pilot and instructor, Shawn Coyle writes in a conversationally, yet technically oriented way. I highly recommend this book and two other books he has written: "The Art and Science of Flying Helicopters" and "The Little Book of Autorotations." If I were teaching an introductory course on flying helicopters, I would (in all modesty) begin with my own book on the subject, "Learning to Fly Helicopters, Second Edition," and the "FAA’s Rotorcraft Flying Handbook" as an additional reference, then have the students read "Cyclic and Collective" and "The Art and Science of Flying Helicopters." "The Little Book of Autorotations" is valuable for all helicopter pilots, whether in training or already licensed, and is a must read for anyone planning to become a helicopter flight instructor.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best helicopter book I've read Oct. 26 2013
By Nomes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this book!! I'm a helicopter instructor, and this book has really helped me through the ratings. The wording is different than the FAA books, a little bit more down to earth. I love the vastness as well, it covers a lot.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic May 27 2013
By Peter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A classic text that gives some subtle insights to rotorcraft handling in a very accessible and easy to read manner.
4.0 out of 5 stars Cyclic and Collective Aug. 5 2012
By Jman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author has an engaging and curious writing style, with a slight humour.
However, I think that the diagrams that help explain forces working together could have been made better, they are sometimes very difficult to understand.
