From transforming the ways of war to offering godlike views of inaccessible spots, revolutionizing rescues worldwide, and providing some of our most-watched TV moments—including the cloud of newscopters that trailed O. J. Simpson’s Bronco—the helicopter is far more capable than early inventors expected. Now James Chiles profiles the many helicoptrians who contributed to the development of this amazing machine, and pays tribute to the selfless heroism of pilots and crews. A virtual flying lesson and scientific adventure tale, The God Machine is more than the history of an invention; it is a journey into the minds of imaginative thinkers and a fascinating look at the ways they changed our world.

Trade Paperback + PDF eBook "bundle" version: Trade paperback book comes with code to download the eBook from ASA's website. This comprehensive textbook explains the aerodynamics of helicopter flight as well as helicopter maneuvers, going beyond the strictly "how-to" type of aviation manual. Helicopter pilots need to thoroughly understand the consequences of their actions and base them upon sound technical knowledge; this textbook explains why the helicopter flies and even more importantly, why it sometimes does not. Beginning with aerodynamics, each step of the process is fully illustrated and thoroughly explainedfrom the physics of advanced operations to helicopter design and performanceproviding helicopter pilots with a solid foundation upon which to base their in-flight decisions. Containing discussions on the NOTAR (no tail rotor) system, strakes, principles of airspeed and high-altitude operations, operations on sloping surfaces, and sling operations, this revised edition also includes the latest procedures Federal Aviation Administration.

This indispensable tool prepares helicopter pilots for their one-on-one checkride with an FAA examiner. Answers to the most commonly asked questions, clarification on the requirements of the written and oral portions, and study material for the exam are provided, and topics covered include certification and documents, helicopter flight-controls, weight and balance, and emergency operations. This volume of the Oral Exam Guide Series is intended as a helicopter-specific supplement to—and is meant to be used along with—the corresponding Oral Exam Guide book for Private, Instrument, Commercial, CFI, or ATP, depending on the specific license the applicant is testing for. The material is presented in a question-and-answer format, providing the questions the FAA checkride examiners are most likely to ask along with comprehensive, easy-to-remember responses. This guide teaches not only what to expect on the helicopter pilot oral exam, but also how to exhibit subject mastery and confidence while under the examiner’s scrutiny.

The Official U.S. Army Field Manual FM 3-04.203

This is the current official army U.S. Army Field Manual, unchanged since this edition completed 7th May 2007. Field manual (FM) 3-04.203 presents information to plan and conduct common aviation tasks for fixed- and rotary-wing flight. However, it has become more inclusive and its scope broadened to reduce the number of manuals used by Army crewmembers for reference. One of the underlying premises of Army aviation is if crewmembers understand 'why' they will be better prepared to 'do' when confronted with the unexpected. FM 3-04.203 endeavors to ensure that crewmembers understand the basic physics of flight, and the dynamics associated with fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. A comprehensive understanding of these principles will better prepare a crew member for flight, transition training, and tactical flight operations.

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.

One problem with helicoptering is that there are virtually no flying clubs, at least of the sort that exist for fixed wing, so pilots get very little chance to swap stories, unless they meet in a muddy field somewhere, waiting for their passengers. As a result, the same mistakes are being made and the same lessons learnt separately instead of being shared - it's comforting sometimes to know that you're not the only one to inflate the floats by accident! Even when you do get into a school, there are still a couple of things they don't teach you, namely that aviation runs on paperwork, and how to get a job, including interview techniques, etc - flying the aircraft is actually less than a third of the job. Another is that nobody really tells you anything, either about the job you have to do (from the customer) or how to do it (the company) - you will always be up against the other guy who managed to do it last week! Sure, there will be training, but, even in the best companies, this will be relatively minimal. This book is an attempt to correct the above situations by gathering together as much information as possible for helicopter pilots, old and new, professional and otherwise, in an attempt to explain the why, so the how will become easier (you will be so much more useful if you know what the customer is trying to achieve). In short, this is all the stuff nobody taught me - every tip and trick I have learnt has been included.

The "Aircraft Weight and Balance Handbook" (FAA-H-8083-1B - 2016) has been prepared in recognition of the importance of weight and balance technology in conducting safe and efficient flight. The objective of this handbook is twofold: to provide the airframe and powerplant mechanic (A&P) with the method of determining the empty weight and empty weight center of gravity (EWCG) of an aircraft and to furnish the flight crew with information on loading and operating the aircraft to ensure its weight is within the allowable limit and the center of gravity (CG) is within the allowable range.
