The modern helicopter is a sophisticated device which merges a surprising number of technologies together. This wide range of disciplines is one of the fascinations of the helicopter, but it is also makes a complete understanding difficult. Those searching for an understanding of the helicopter will find The Art of the Helicopter invaluable. John Watkinson approaches every subject associated with the helicopter from first principles and builds up in a clearly explained logical sequence using plain English and clear diagrams, avoiding unnecessary mathematics. Technical terms and buzzwords are defined and acronyms are spelled out. Misnomers, myths and old wives tales (for there are plenty surrounding helicopters) are disposed of. Whilst the contents of the book are expressed in straightforward language there is no oversimplification and the content is based on established physics and accepted theory. The student of helicopter technology or aerodynamics will find here a concise introduction leading naturally to more advanced textbooks on the subject. * Designed to complement the instruction of PPL(H) flying training in order to assist helicopter pilots in-training to achieve their "wings". * Clear and simple diagrams aid verbal explanations to provide an easy to understand account of how helicopters are made, how they fly and how to fly them. * The only book to cover all the aspects of helicopter design, manufacture and performance in one volume.

Written from a pilot's perspective, this unique book provides a vomprehansive overview od helicopter flying. It provides an unparalleled insight into all aspects of the modern helicopter, from turbine engines to Automaoic Flight Control Systems, including descrittions of phenomena not explained elsewhere. The book is arranged in two parts: Beginners section which covers the fundamentals of helicopter theory, performance and flying. Numerous examples of how different fundamentals interact, as seen from the cockpit, are presented. Advanced section covers material relevant to those who already know about the machine, this section uses many of the chapter headings of the first part but goes into much greater detail. The material on autorotations is the most comprehensive in any book on helicopters and the viewpoint is always from the cockpit. Based on the author's experience of flying more than 43 types of helicopters ranging from the Mi-26 to the R-22, and his experience in flight testing a wide variety of machines, the style adopted is easily understood and describes not only the way helicopters fly but also some of the peculiar things they do, and why. This long needed, exciting book satisfies, in a single volume, the needs of all pilots whether they fly helicopters, are learning to fly helicopters, or are instructing on helicopters. It also satisfies the technical requirements for any entry level college course on rotor wing aircraft and will be of interest to amateurs and enthusiasts alike.

This study explains how Westland dominated British helicopter production and why government funding and support failed to generate competitive "all-British" alternatives. In doing so, the book evaluates broader historiographic assumptions about the purported "failure" of british aircraft procurement during the early post-war period and considers the scope and limitations of licensed production as a government-mandated procurement strategy.
