Written by an internationally recognized teacher and researcher, this book provides a thorough, modern treatment of the aerodynamic principles of helicopters and other rotating-wing vertical lift aircraft such as tilt rotors and autogiros. The text begins with a unique technical history of helicopter flight, and then covers basic methods of rotor aerodynamic analysis, and related issues associated with the performance of the helicopter and its aerodynamic design. It goes on to cover more advanced topics in helicopter aerodynamics, including airfoil flows, unsteady aerodynamics, dynamic stall, and rotor wakes, and rotor-airframe aerodynamic interactions, with final chapters on autogiros and advanced methods of helicopter aerodynamic analysis. Extensively illustrated throughout, each chapter includes a set of homework problems. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students, practising engineers, and researchers will welcome this thoroughly revised and updated text on rotating-wing aerodynamics.

Tales Of A Helicopter Pilot

Richard Kirkland is legendary for his P-38 Lightning missions in the South Pacific theater during WWII. After the war, he realized the potential of Igor Sikorsky’s new flying machine, and he traded in his fighter-pilot wings for rotors. The nerve-racking chopper missions he has flown are the stuff of legend: scrambling to evacuate president Harry Truman after an unthinkable “code red one” alert comes over his red phone; bantering with the real “Hawkeye” at a MASH unit before flying into North Korea to rescue wounded soldiers. Equally riveting are his accounts of a medevac pilot in Vietnam who lands a ten ton CH-46 “Frog” in the jungle at night, with no lights, under fire, with only a soldier’s cigarette lighter for reference; and an aerial tour pilot who routinely pulls people out of the water above, below, and right before Niagara Falls.

What if . . . instead of returning home from the war a celebrated hero, he had been killed in action? How would history and the present be different if he hadn't survived to become a world leader at a critical juncture in time? This account of an alternative Cold War history is witnessed through the eyes of Ryan Ferguson, a cynical newspaper reporter, as he reflects on the early careers of several of his college buddies, a Marine Officer in the Caribbean, a Naval Aviator and wanna-be astronaut, an Army Officer in Europe, a State Department bureaucrat in Saigon, and a Civil Rights Activist in Birmingham during this pivotal year in American history. Jerome Callahan was raised in Austell, Georgia and currently resides with his wife and two children in Mesa, Arizona.

Helicopters: An Illustrated History of Their Impact covers the development of helicopters from the first successful machines in the early 1900s to their current status as a key component of combat planning around the world and as one of the military's most versatile and effective tools. Helicopters is a story of ongoing innovation in the face of stubborn resistance. Time and again, helicopter designers developed more capable rotorcraft and then had to lobby skeptical military planners to get them deployed. With expert analysis of all significant models, colorful portrayals of key figures in the evolution of helicopters, and vivid images of rotorcraft on the drawing board and in action, this revealing volume shows how an often denigrated machine became an essential military asset around the world, as well as an important tool in a number of areas, from police work to medical evacuation to farming.
