"The dream of becoming a certificated Helicopter Private Pilot is a dream many people have had since the beginning of aviation. Dreaming is the easy part but earning the coveted private pilot certificate will require a lot of work on your part and it is worth it. I created this private pilot study guide for everyone who has the dream of becoming a pilot. I struggled with all the ground knowledge and always wondered why there wasn't some in-depth study guide for helicopter training. Sure, you can find some material out there if you search hard enough, but I wanted something no one else had. This manual is designed to help you test your knowledge and give you an idea of a variety of questions you might be asked by your instructor and the examiner."
