Product Information

'This is compulsory reading for all helicopter pilots and passengers, as much can be learned from the mistakes of others. Most if not all helicopter accident types are in this well-researched book. Many of the aircraft accidents I attend as a rescue pilot have all happened previously to others. We need to use careful risk assessment and minimisation techniques to prevent reoccurrences in the future. This book highlights many examples of the risks that lie ahead for all helicopter pilots and passengers.' John Funnell, President Aviation Industry Association of New Zealand 'I would like to think that Fatal Traps for Helicopter Pilots is destined to become a well worn and dog-eared favourite in every helicopter training establishment and rotary pilot's bookshelf.' John Fogden, Manager Rotary Wing/Agricultural Ops NZ Civil Aviation Authority..
