Helicopter Maneuvers Manual
A step-by-step illustrated guide to performing all helicopter flight operations
Aviation Supplies & Acad Inc
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.

He wrote the Helicopter Oral Exam Guide and Helicopter Maneuvers Manual to help other pilots pass exams and reach their goals in flying.
Ryan Dale holds both airplane and helicopter instructor ratings and works for a regional flight training company that trains pilots in their King Air 300 airplane and simulator. He also manages the helicopter simulator program that trains pilots for inadvertent IMC and brown/whiteout scenarios.
