The Bell 206 Jetranger Helicopter Book

In response to popular demand, this book is based on the Bell 206 chapter in Phil Crouchers ''Helicopter Pilot's Handbook'' and reflects the author's extensive experience, both on type and training others to fly it.

 

 

 

 

''On a happy note, I finally got my PPC done on the 206. The new 206 book was great for getting me spot on for the numbers, actually was complimented for my ability to retain all the VNE's in different flight configurations. This is a book that I will be referencing on a regular basis.''

D. Keast

''I thought it well written and thought-out without just being a copy of everything that's out there.''
