Wow!

  • By Robert from Valencia CA USA on Friday, January 18, 2013
  • Pros: Technically understandable with the perfect amount of depth!
  • Cons: None
  • Review: Starts out so basic you're ready to yawn! But turn a few pages and there is so much useful and interesting material you can't put the book down! Just technical enough, and yet lots of mind boggling facts of helicopter flying that one never even considered! Excellent explanations!!

Required Reference material

  • By jeff: a new Comm Pilot from owego NY USA on Monday, April 26, 2010
  • Pros: Very easy to understand. Well categorized information.
  • Cons: I didn't find anything not to like about it.
  • Review: I should have bought this book on day one. Unless you already have a whole lot of helicopter piloting experience and helicopter theory knowledge, this is a must. You will find that much of the information is standard test question related verbiage. For the price of the book, it makes no sense not to have it.
