From the author
First and foremost, I hope this guide gives you just that: Guidance. It has been written in simple, concise and practical terms. That is my hope anyway!

This guide is compiled from a collection of notes and handouts assembled for my past instrument- helicopter students. Learning to fly helicopters can, at times, be challenging enough. The pursuit of the instrument helicopter rating adds a new level of knowledge and hopefully, a new level of understanding about many flight dynamics.

This guide will provide the reader with a basic overview of the Instrument Landing System and its various associated components. The material has been written for you, the helicopter pilot, by a helicopter pilot and instructor. Sadly, the majority of training guides, manuals and texts are normally geared for our fixedwing brethren. Finally, a guide just for you!
