THE HELICOPTER PILOT'S MANUAL. Volume 2: Powerplants, Instruments & Hydraulics.
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.
