Helicopter Principles Of Flight. ISBN How the helicopter flies! It sure beats the pants [out] of the Wagtendonk in meeting with the Canadian requirements, and being just a tad more understandable. Until recently, the only option for instrument rating training in Europe was a full course requiring up to hours of theoretical knowledge instruction, but the Enroute and Competency-Based Instrument ratings for aeroplanes only are a part of a new approach that is supposed to make instrument flying more accessible, because the original courses were designed as part of a commercial course and were necessarily intense.
This book is for people who already hold an ICAO IR, and who can simply convert to the EASA version by completing the skill test and demonstrating to the examiner during the skill test an adequate knowledge of air law, meteorology and flight planning. It contains all the information needed to answer the examiner's questions, plus tip and tricks not usually taught on such a basic course.
Avionics In Plain English. ISBN The rate of change in the field of avionics is so fast that even the legislators are struggling to keep up with it. With new digital cockpits, it is getting to the stage that, if your VCR still flashes , you will have no business flying a modern helicopter! The majority of twin-engined and many single-engined aircraft now have complex autopilots, glass cockpits and navigation equipment, possibly including Flight Management Systems FMS. This book originated with a request from the RCAF for training materials for engineers, but curious pilots whose training syllabus did not include avionics, and who would like to know a little more will find it useful as well.
Professional Helicopter Pilot Studies. Australian readers - please get the EASA version and ignore the law chapter!
Recommended by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University! The book has been specially designed for the needs of professional or military pilots seeking to gain an alternative licence, but newcomers to the industry can use it, too, since it assumes no previous knowledge. Just as important as the exams is the interview panel, and this is the book for those who want to deal with both - its purpose is to help you become a professional, for which the exams are but a step on the way - doing the bare minimum to pass them makes you ill-prepared to be a pilot, which is not fair to future passengers and painfully obvious to employers and interviewers who certainly expect you to have more than a basic knowledge.
It is a reference book that follows the ATPL H syllabus, so you can use it before, during and after your exams, for the whole of your career!

Because it provides an overview of the whole study syllabus, and the usual study materials are not easy to read on the bus or the train, the book is suitable for many types of reader: Those who want to see what they are letting themselves in for. Those who want to do some pre-study before starting a flying course. Those who cannot understand the materials on the course they are already on. Those who want a reminder of the trouble they went through!

People trying to keep current while waiting for a job or an interview to turn up will also find it useful. In fact, there's a lot in its pages you don't get taught in flying school, and a lot you should be taught, were it not for time constraints - many professional tips and tricks have been included to help make your transition to being a working pilot as easy as possible.
Much of the contents are based on common questions asked during recurrent training, and known exam questions, and include the usual subjects, that is, radio, weather, law, flight planning, etc. However, ATPL H holders with at least hours PIC or copilot on multi-pilot helicopters type rated for the multi-pilot machine to be used for the skill test, with at least hours on type, are exempt from the TRTO course or any training for the theoretical exams, and the skill test no, you are not exempt the skill test, just any knowledge requirements for it!
With less than hours on type, you are exempt from the theoretical exam training, but will still have to do a type rating course, which may be reduced anyway because of previous experience. This means that you can just book the exams, read this book and take them, with no sign-off from a training school - there is a slot on the application form for exemptions claimed. As a former Chief Pilot and Training Pilot I have gone through a lot of books over the years and have written quite a few of my own company handbooks and training courses.
This is without a doubt the best book in its class. Beyond the obvious fact that it is fantastic as a study manual, it is simply a pleasure to read. I found myself reading it for enjoyment as opposed to reading it simply to study. The typeface and layout are outstanding and a pleasure on the eyes. The copy flows nicely and is succinct without being dry; informative without being verbose. Job well done!! I look forward to getting my hands on a few of your other books in the near future.

I look forward to that. If that's the case I hope that you will include a robust section regarding the hydraulic system on the AS I've found over the years that most pilots have a very poor understanding of how the system actually works which may have contributed to the various accidents in the past few years. Warmest regards," Lee Johnson. Trying to hit that easy medium you mentioned sure isn't easy! Pretty damn good if I may say.
Keep up the good work! And after all these years in high tech, I know I can study all the basic text to get the foundation without having someone spoon feed me in class. And I know your book will do that. Very succinct" Dean Phillips. From what I have seen of most training manuals, they are written by professional flight instructors who have very little practical experience out in the field. That is where your book outshines most other books" Richard Theriault.
Everything else is sooooooooooo dry and seems to make an exciting subject very, very dull.
Wagtendonk, W. J. (Walter J.) 1929-
All wrapped in a good sense of humour. The book certainly approaches the ATPL subjects from a rather different angle than I have ever encountered. The humour, wit and undoubted flight experience of the writer come through when discussing the various ATPL exam subjects. My impressions of the book are vary favourable. Having read it twice, it struck me as being very well researched, informative and well laid out. The book has wide margins on each page for the student to make notes, etc.
For me was very useful, and for the present and the future is a very good consult tool that is very easy to find any question quickly in only one book. Also it has another thing very difficult to explain for me; in the book I feel your experience not only the theoretical like the rest of my books. After getting over the sheer size of the book I have found the content truly informative and logical and humourous which also helps!
Without question I am amazed with the level of service that you provide. It is SO rare to get even any level of acceptable service in the UK. What I have experienced in such a short space of time from yourself far far exceeds any other service experience I have ever had! Keep doing what you are doing!! It's truly unique. He said my ground school knowledge was very good and in a way you had a hand in it! I got your book Professional Helicopter pilot studies and it really helped me a lot throughout the course!

It is an amazing book! Kind regards" Alf. I've got rather large ring binders to study from and the book condenses all of this and more to be fair into a handy size which is great since I can hide it in my brief case and read it at work!! I like the way it's written - and I especially like the humour!!
If there is something I can't get my head around in my "formal" notes then I can pretty much guarantee to find an alternative explanation in your book. I also like the going for a job section - it's really useful to get a feel for what you will most likely come up against - especially the interview and possible questions you may get asked.
I dont think I interview particularly well so any head start on that area is most welcome. After a quick scan through it looks to be exactly what I was after - the entire syllabus plus more , very well-written and in a handy size. I'm really pleased. You got it right on. Best compilation over a relative few pages of so much material I have seen. Have read a few of these human factors books, and this chapter is stellar. You even used the same examples of accidents that I use, so it'll flow really good with my personal groundschool.
This seems to give lots of value, without having to get another 10 pounds of wasted paper, in outdated books. Everything else is downloadable from Transport Canada! I am impressed with the detail, especially in the human factors section.
