Helicopter Aerodynamics, Structures, and Systems is a complete and modern textbook developed to international (B1.3 / B1.4) standards for the helicopter technician and engineer. As with all ATB modules, this too matches all requirements of EASA Part 66 including its content, sequence, and the required learning levels (L1, 2, or 3) needed for an approved Part 147 helicopter maintenance technician program.
The systems covered in this book, go far beyond just rotor and flight controls. All relevant helicopter systems, organized by ATA chapter, are described in depth with an emphasis on its unique functions and how they pertain too and differ with helicopters.
