Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having flown in many Hughes/McDac and Bell helicopters and most recently Aerospatiale Dauphin 2 helicopters for work, this book is one of best books one the subject. In the news, one sees quite a few incidents of inexperienced pilots and celebrity pilots going down in their helos with tragic results. Helicopters because of their complexity require very well trained and experienced pilots. This book is good for anyone interested in helicopters regardless of their experience. I found the Chapters on Balance Forces and Controlling the Helicopter, Advanced Engine Failures and Further Peculiarities of Helicopter Flight quite interesting.

I found this book to be a great resource for learning all the complicated aspects of helicopters. This one book did it all for me.
My background is ex-Navy pilot and retired airline pilot who is just learning to fly helicopters. This book gave me information that my ground school instructors did not know how to convey properly. An absolutely superior book for learning to fly helicopters.

I am an air force helicopter pilot.The most important thing about this book is that it has written by a well experienced pilot who combines the comblex theory of helo flight with the practical aspect of the flight.It just gave me a lot of answers.

Format: Paperback
I read this book three times to get the full scope of all the information contained. It is technical but easy to read. The only complaint I had was many of the topics in the advanced section would loose the reader in a sea of information. over-all a really good book for someone who wants to learn to fly or just got thier PPL.

Excellent book for beginners and experts alike, but you might want to think twice before buying this one, as Coyle has just released a vastly expanded edition called "Cyclic & Collective: More Art and Science of Flying Helicopters", published by Helobooks.com

I recently began reading this book, and I find it nothing less than astonishing. Its large amount of tables, figures, and charts help to really explain the text. I am a younger person, and really didnt expect to understand rotary wing flight, but this book has really made it possible for me. This book is a great bok for beginners as well as experienced flyers. Overall I think this book is an excellent buy.
