The Scientific Publication Division have just published the latest book of the doyen of Polish helicopter pilots – Ryszard Witkowski. “History of the helicopter” is the first factual monograph presenting the idea of rotorcraft from the beginning to modern times.
Despite its historical accuracy, the book is written in a very engaging way. Witkowski guides us through the history of European pioneers, and fully illustrates the contribution of Americans and Russians. Of course, there is also a Polish strand.
Due to the fullness and regularity of the study, “The history of the helicopter” should be in every aviation library. Numerous illustrations, many unknown facts, sometimes sensational ones – all this makes the book “from cover to cover” read.
The book is now available in our online shop. Feel free to read!
