This is the third collection of articles from flying instructor Helen Krasner's popular column in the publication "Flight Training News". Written at various times over the period 2006 - 2011, this book is aimed at anyone who is interested in helicopter flying, but should be particularly useful for helicopter flight students, people who have a helicopter pilot's licence and fly as a leisure activity, or those are aiming to get a helicopter commercial pilot's licence in the future. This book consists of 12 articles, has well over 20,000 words, and includes a useful glossary. Topics covered include flying helicopters in marginal weather, flying different helicopter types, and becoming a professional helicopter pilot and/or instructor.
Helen Krasner has been flying for many years, and holds a Commercial Helicopter Pilot's Licence and Instructor's Rating. She also has a Private Pilot’s Licence for Aeroplanes, and well over 1000 hours flying time in total. Until recently she worked as a freelance helicopter instructor, flying mainly R22s and R44s. She has written a large number of books about flying, both traditional print books and ebooks.
