This book is the definitive autorotation teaching guide and much more. The Little Book of Autorotations is a mandatory read as part of your training or skill improvement for quick stops, autorotations (with an instructor with you of course), and truly understanding the nature of your helicopter. Ask your self this question if you think you don't need to read this book: What is the best strategy to perform an emergency autorotation in the dark of the night? Lights on or off? Flare or not to flare? Find out from the expert in this book.
If you are a helicopter instructor you should read this book with another instructor and go out and build-up your own skills. If you are a student then buy two copies; one for you and one for your instructor. Students: Take ownership of your training. Instructors (CFI): You're never to experienced to learn from the most experienced.
As licensed helicopter pilots and student pilots we all know that ideal conditions are few and far in between. Given this truth we need to take responsibility to expand our skills every day and ensure the safety of our passengers and ourselves. The Little Book of Autorotations is a straight forward guide on the subject of understanding the limits of your helicopter. It dispels many myths created by the flight school industry. Think of this book as the raw helicopter test pilot experience passed on in an easy to understand conversation. The book recommends factory training if at all possible to really dig into the specific details of your helicopter. In any path you take this book is a smart choice to start down the right path.
Get one for your Kindle, get the iPAD version using the iPAD Kindle app LIttle Book of Autorotations, get the hardcopy LIttle Book of Autorotations and get one for your instructor and favorite student. They will thank you for years to come.
that allows you to understand what transpires during an autorotation
and in addition describes which options are best. i.e. it advises that using the bottom
of the allowable rotor speed range rather than the highest rpm during
autorotation reduces your decent rate by 400 fpm. Needless to say this must
be validated by your CFI.
I had some questions and wrote to Shawn at the address in the book and he promptly responded, something of a bonus!
Great technical and detailed info on the skills we don't practice enough. Greatly augmented the knowledge base that the military doesn't teach and schools don't get to much because that time is MONEY.
