This second volume of the Helicopter Pilot's Manual provides a natural follow-on to Norman Bailey's first manual.  It also aims to instruct and help the would-be pilot to pass the PPL(H) and is concerned with the mechanical aspects of the examination. 

The large section on gas-turbine engines provides essential reading for those pilots wishing to convert to the type.  Of primary importance are the chapters on piston and turbine powerplants, airworthiness, flight instruments and hydraulics.  Fully illustrated with color diagrams and engine plans, the style is easy to understand and pleasant to read, but nevertheless conveys all the necessary information.
