Customer Reviews For Fatal Traps for Helicopter Pilots:

Thursday, March 25, 2010
Very well pleased w/the information in this book.
by Robert from Brevard NC USA 

Pros: Relevant information about things a pilot MUST know to be safe.
Cons: Haven't found any. The book is wonderful.
Review: As a helicopter pilot, I want, and need, to know about things affecting helicopter flight that are NOT taught in standard classes for helicopter ratings. It is, or should be, a normal evolution for a dedicate helicopter pilot to want to learn more about safe flight and operations of helicopters. This book covers those very important issues not taught other than through the school of hard knocks.
