Airframe, Systems & Emergency Equipment provides guidance in the basics of the build of a helicopter. In addition to build and construction, this book also discusses functionality and maintenance of these systems. Structure, hydraulics, landing gear and steering are covered in detail. Pressurization, air-conditioning, de- and anti-icing, as well as fuel system are also covered. Get a good grounding in the technical aspects of a helicopter's structure, systems and its emergency equipment.
Air Law & Communications introduces pilots to knowledge regarding regulations and responsibilities in international aviation. As this subject can often be a confusing and daunting subject to many students, this manual is organized and written in a way that is easily digested.
Electrics covers the basics of AC and DC power. Generation of power, generators and bus structures are logically covered. Not everyone has a natural tendency toward technical subjects like electricity, so the Electrics manual is written in an informative way that doesn't leave you wondering what it all means.
Flight Planning & Monitoring provides the pilot the necessary knowledge on the subject of flight planning, fuel planning, flight preparation and monitoring activities in flight. Starting from the basics of flight planning, instrument and visual flight, all the way to in-flight re-planning, learning contents are explained step by step. All topics such as VFR and IFR navigation plans, minimum altitudes standard departures (SIDs), standard approach routes (STARs) and ETOPS calculations are detailed with photorealistic illustrations and diagrams, high-quality animation and graphics, as a useful supplement. So intricate knowledge itself is simply taught and learned in a very short time.
General Navigation deals with the question of how a pilot can be safely guided. It covers the basics of navigation, such as the structure of the solar system, the origin of the seasons, geomagnetism and the function of a magnetic compass and navigational definition of key terms. A separate chapter deals with the issue of aeronautical charts and the different projection methods. Finally, this volume is dedicated to the navigation in flight, the detection of deviations from the planned course and any necessary corrections, the creation of a flight plan and use of the information contained therein in flight. Prepare for the General Navigation exam, plus explore the practical aspects of navigation that might be encountered during commercial airline operations.
Human Performance & Limitations focuses on the human factor. The book conveys general aspects and models for accident prevention and flight safety. The flight physiology chapter deals with the physical environmental conditions and their impact on the human body. In the chapter in aviation psychology the reader is presented with information processing, human error and cooperation in the cockpit.
Instrumentation provides an overview on construction and function of sensor and systems. This volume will present the instrument screens and help pilots interpreting and properly sense possible malfunctions. With the Instrumentation text, you'll take a closer look at how to present flight and navigation data to your crew.
Mass & Balance introduces to pilots how to calculate the maximum take-off mass and the corresponding center of gravity (CG). This book discusses the basics of mass and center of gravity calculations for airplanes, procedures for aircraft weighing and to find the empty CG. The Mass & Balance text ensures that you have a good understanding of the effects of adding or subtracting a mass from an airplane, or moving a mass within an airplane.
Meteorology provides the pilot with the necessary knowledge on the topic of weather and climate. Starting from the basics, up to the flight weather briefing, all learning contents are explained step by step. All topics, such as the structure of the atmosphere, the formation of pressure systems and fronts, cloud shapes and meteorological hazards, are adequately supplemented by detailed graphics, charts, and videos. Thus, complex knowledge is self taught and learned in just a short time. Weather plays an integral role in the outcome of any flight, so it's important to make sure you understand the fundamentals of weather.
Operational Procedures deals with the legal aspects of commercial flight operations and the peculiarities of helicopter flying in particular. This book explains both the various ICAO annexes and the EU OPS and NAT MNPS relevant documents. Learn the requirements to gain your AOC, plus gain a greater understanding of operational procedures.
Performance provides the aspiring pilot with means to calculate the knowledge of flight performance data from takeoff via hovering to landing. It enables the pilot to learn the skill as a pilot in command to check the helicopter on adequate capacity for the intended flight. Starting with the basics, care was taken that contents where supplemented by numerous graphs and charts. Performance for helicopters provides a concise but readable set of notes which covers the majority of the EASA syllabus, while emphasizing the operational significance of rotorcraft performance.
Power Plant deals with the creation of thrust for piston and turbine engines alike. Starting with basic functionality this volume covers the different types of power plants and their construction. This is followed with a discussion on how to operate those power plants and what potential errors could occur on the piloting side. Gain insight into the construction, function, and operation of both piston and gas turbine engines in preparation for the EU-FCL 021 exam.
Principles of Flight 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. 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.
Radio Navigation deals with techniques to determine one's position with the help of navigation transmitters. Readers are introduced to the basic principles of radio navigation, to enable them to understand the function and limitations of common systems today, in order to use them consciously and safely. Radio Navigation is an essential element of IFR route flying and a subject in which the prospective Airline Transport Pilot must be proficient.
Important notice: as these books are always printed on demand, to ensure they remain up to date at all times, delivery can take up to 2 weeks and more. If you are interested in buying separate manuals instead of the complete set and/or if you are an ATO, please contact us for exact prices.
