Helicopter Maneuvers Manual: A step-by-step illustrated guide to performing all helicopter flight operations
Helicopter Maneuvers Manual: A step-by-step illustrated guide to
Providing a detailed look at helicopter maneuvers, the information in this guide helps to solidify concepts gained from flight training in a student pilot's mind by incorporating the Practical Test Standards into every maneuver description. The graphical and textual explanations work in conjunction with an instructor's lessons, allowing students to prepare before sessions and to review afterwards as well.There are many guides to flight maneuvers and how to fly them in airplanes but none specifically made for helicopters, and not in the complete and fully color-illustrated way as presented in "Helicopter Maneuvers Manual." This handbook will be of immense help to flight instructors teaching helicopter maneuvers, following the FAA's practical test standards for certification of helicopter pilots. This book not only helps in training but can also be used for reference throughout the helicopter pilot's flight career. It provides readers with a crystal-clear picture of what level of performance is expected of them every step and includes insights into the common errors associated with each move.

Helicopter Flight Training: Lesson Plans for Students & Instructors with Questions Plus a Lot More
Helicopter Flight Training: Lesson Plans for Students &
I’ve always enjoyed passing knowledge onto others, and in a career spanning over 50 years with varied experiences, I’ve gained a lot of experience to pass on, and this book is a means of passing that knowledge on to aspiring students and would be, or existing, instructors.This book covers all the sequences required through to a commercial pilot licence, plus night flying and basic instrument flying, and each lesson plan is designed to bring the student up to a high standard of proficiency, not just the minimum required standard.Not only does it go into detail as to what should be taught, it details what the student can expect from each lesson, how to conduct themselves within that lesson, and at the end of each lesson there’s a number of revision questions, with answers at the end of the book.Safety is uppermost in my approach to training and all other aspects of aviation, and it shows in this publication.For instructors, it gives an insight into how various sequences should be taught, what the instructor can expect from the student, and what they should expect from themselves.

AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter Pilot's Flight Operating Instructions
AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter Pilot's Flight Operating
Developed and deployed in a short time due to the pressure of the Vietnam War, Bell’s AH-1 Cobra performed well; but Army planners believed a better attack helicopter would be needed in the next war. In 1976, Hughes Helicopter’s YAH-64A prototype bested the Cobra in firepower, performance and range, and won the competition to replace it. It would be 1982 before production commenced, but eventually over 1100 would be produced including the advanced AH-64D Apache Longbow. Dubbed the Apache, the AH-64 is a four- blade, twin-engine, tandem-cockpit design with tailwheel landing gear. The AH-64 features double and triple-rendundant systems that ensure maximum survivability in combat, and an awesome array of weapons that can include Hellfire missiles and a 30mm M230 Chain Gun that can be slaved to the pilot’s head movements via a helmet mounted display (IHADSS). The Apache first saw combat during the invasion of Panama in 1989, and conducted the first attack of Operation Desert Storm in 1991, flying into Iraq to destroy enemy radar systems. AH-64s are credited with destroying over 500 tanks during that conflict. They continued their service in Bosnia and Kosovo, in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. The AH-64 is now also deployed by the United ...

Tactical Helicopter Missions: How to Fly Safe, Effective Airborne Law Enforcement Missions
Tactical Helicopter Missions: How to Fly Safe, Effective
Over 400 law enforcement units in the U.S. alone now employ aviation units, which represents a significant increase since 1990. With this growth has come the need to advance the mission and capabilities of airborne law enforcement. The main emphasis of this book strives to explain why certain law enforcement helicopter tactics and procedures are safer and more effective than others. The author, whose subject matter expertise has been attained after many successful years of experience as a tactical flight officer, pilot and flight instructor, and through a sharing of his experiences with the reader, captures the intricate nuances of the unique and specialized profession of airborne law enforcement. He successfully summarizes the tactical excellence needed to transform the science and technology of police air support into a masterful art. A well-trained aircrew that is proficient with their tactics, technology, and each other will significantly enhance the safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of officers on the ground. When an aircrew is overhead, providing patrol support, suspects are much less likely to continue their criminal activity or escape. The missions that aircrews perform, however, are only part of the equation; how they perform them is what makes the difference between...
