OVERVIEW
Understanding aerodynamics theory, as it relates to helicopters, is key to being a safe and effective helicopter pilot.  Helicopter aerodynamics is much more than the rotor blades simply “beating the air into submission”, and although it may appear complex, it is a combination of a handful of very basic physics concepts.  A sound understanding of aerodynamics is crucial to become a much safer pilot by avoiding dangerous altitudes and situations.
