Delve into the principles underlying your practical flight training with the Principles of Flight manual. This volume highlights the specifics on helicopters aerodynamics in particular.
The subject “aerodynamics” deals with the basics of subsonic and supersonic aerodynamics, as well as the forces and moments occurring in flight. Profile and shape of the primary and secondary flight control surface will be explained and two and three-dimensional flow around the wings and rotors will be examined. Furthermore, the emergence and importance of air lift and drag forces are introduced and measures to increase or destruct buoyancy in certain flight situations are presented. Always up to date, printed on demand and using QR codes to provide animated graphics, this book presents this knowledge step-by-step.
