This is a collection of Ray Prouty's columns from Rotor and Wing magazine from 1979 to 1992.

Ray Prouty is a Grand Elder of the helicopter industry. For many years, Ray brought the black art of helicopter aerodynamics into a refreshing new light for the readers of Rotor & Wing International magazine. Ray wrote these articles over a large time span, so in some cases, certain subjects were hit more than once. Rather than to try and cut anything out, everything is include in two books. The result is a very readable, hefty 500-page work, jam-packed with extraordinary insights into helicopter aerodynamics, design, and handling.

About the Author:
Ray's career began in 1952, when, according to David Jenson of Rotor & Wing, "he put his Bachelors degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Washington to application at Hughes Tool Co.'s Aircraft Division. He worked as a helicopter aerodynamicist at Hughes until 1954, when he moved his talents to Sikorsky Aircraft until 1956. Between 1958 and 1960, Ray was a stability and control specialist at Bell Helicopter, and then group engineer for helicopter aerodynamics at Lockheed Aircraft from 1960 to 1973. From 1973 until his retirement in 1987, Ray was back at Hughes Helicopters (McDonnell Douglas Helicopter Co.)."
