This revised and expanded edition covers some of the more advanced piloting skills required to fly a helicopter over difficult terrain or in demanding circumstances. Mountains and hills present some of the most frequently encountered problems, as do adverse weather conditions, winter operations, carrying loads, forced landings, and rescue or other special operations. This book gives sound guidance and advice on how to evaluate and deal with many of these situations.
