excellent book to read about helicopters
I really enjoy reading about helicopters and how things can happen in the air and there are not many books in such detail as the flying handbook.

Pros: This is the accepted standard for rotor wing reference. It is accurate and has a general overview of a wide range of rotor wing theory. Cons: The instrument section is not particular to rotor wing aircraft and is found in other FAA pubs. It is not as detailed in some theory as I would have liked. With shipping, I could have saved about $7 by buying this at my local FBO rather than from Sporty's.

Pros: Excellent book! I am a fixed wing pilot and got this book to pursue a ground instructor rating. Everything was explained in terms that everyone could understand and actually made a lot of fixed wing theories make even more sense.
