The Book The behaviour of helicopters and tiltrotor aircraft is so complex that understanding the physical mechanisms at work in trim, stability and response, and thus the prediction of Flying Qualities, requires a framework of analytical and numerical modelling and simulation. Good Flying Qualities are vital for ensuring that mission performance is achievable with safety and, in the first and second editions of Helicopter Flight Dynamics, a comprehensive treatment of design criteria was presented, relating to both normal and degraded Flying Qualities. Fully embracing the consequences of Degraded Flying Qualities during the design phase will contribute positively to safety. In this third edition, two new Chapters are included. Chapter 9 takes the reader on a journey from the origins of the story of Flying Qualities, tracing key contributions to the developing maturity and to the current position. Chapter 10 provides a comprehensive treatment of the Flight Dynamics of tiltrotor aircraft; informed by research activities and the limited data on operational aircraft. Many of the unique behavioural characteristics of tiltrotors are revealed for the first time in this book. The accurate prediction and assessment of Flying Qualities draws on the modelling and simulation discipline on the one hand and testing practice on the other. Checking predictions in flight requires clearly defined mission tasks, derived from realistic performance requirements. High fidelity simulations also form the basis for the design of stability and control augmentation systems, essential for conferring Level 1 Flying Qualities. The integrated description of flight dynamic modelling, simulation and flying qualities of rotorcraft forms the subject of this book, which will be of interest to engineers practising and honing their skills in research laboratories, academia and manufacturing industries, test pilots and flight test engineers, and as a reference for graduate and postgraduate students in aerospace engineering.

This guide is the standard reference work for recognizing learning acquired by military personnel for conversion to academic credit in degree work at colleges and universities. This volume contains recommendations for formal courses offered by the Air Force, the Coast Guard, the Marine Corps, and the Department of Defense in 1990 and later years. Twenty sections provide the following information: (1) how to find and use course exhibits; (2) sample Coast Guard Rating exhibit; (3) how to find and use Coast Guard occupation exhibits; (4) sample Coast Guard rating exhibit; (5) how to find and use Coast Guard warrant officer exhibits; (6) sample Coast Guard warrant officer exhibit; (7) how to find and use Marine Corps MOS (military occupational specialties) exhibits; (8) sample Marine Corps enlisted MOS exhibit; (9) questions and answers; (10) awarding credit for extrainstitutional learning; (11) transfer and award of credit; (12) elements of a model policy on awarding credit for extrainstitutional learning; (13) Air Force course exhibits; (14) Coast Guard course exhibits; (15) Department of Defense course exhibits; (16) Marine Corps course exhibits; (17) Coast Guard aviator exhibits; (18) Coast Guard enlisted ratings exhibits; (19) Coast Guard warrant officer exhibits; and (20) Marine Corps enlisted MOS exhibits. Each course exhibit includes some or all of the following: course number, title, location, length, dates, learning outcomes, instruction, occupational group, description, career pattern, related occupations, and credit recommendation. The guide also contains eight appendixes: the evaluation systems, sample military records, occupation title index, keyword index, course number index, request for course recommendation, and request for Coast Guard rating and warrant officer exhibits, and request for Marine Corps MOS exhibits.

The following materials are based upon actual helicopter air ambulance accidents. They cover four broad accident types most recently associated with aeromedical accidents: night flying, weather, obstacle strikes, and mechanical failures. Three types of information are included for each accident type. These are: introductory/background material to provide you with the historical importance and frequency of each accident type; training knowledge that should be learned in order to avoid mistakes of the past; and decision making exercises. These decision making exercises are based on accidents reports with persons and places de-identified. They are meant to enhance the basic manual: 'Aeronautical Decision Making for Helicopter Pilots' by providing an insight to the types of decision errors which contributed to accidents in the past. The basic manual contains introductory and tutorial material necessary for improving basic decision making skills. Some material contained in that manual and not included in this one are: rotorcraft risk assessment; the self-awareness inventory; identifying and reducing stress; and headwork. Reading and understanding the concepts of decision making will improve the pilot's ability to analyze the scenarios contained herein. Keywords: Human factors, Human performance, Aviation safety, Aviation training, Pilot error, Judgement, Decision making, Helicopter pilot, Helicopters, Rotorcraft.
