Product Description
These army pilots fly the most demanding helicopter in existence, a machine so complex to operate that it's known as 'Riding the Dragon'. Only 3% of existing army helicopter pilots qualify to fly it. Trainees have to learn to train their eyes to work independently of each other - while the right eye sees flight and weapons information in the helmet's monocle, the left eye is free to look outside the aircraft and scan for threats and other obstacles. And, flying the helicopter is only half the battle - it's purpose is to provide firepower from the air to protect soldiers on the ground. This book lifts the lid on what life is like for these men and women; their training; the aircraft; the missions, and what it's actually like to be under fire while flying.
