Propulsion systems and how pilots manage them have direct effects on upsets and recoveries. This module covers how turbine powerplants act in dynamic environments and how to properly operate them in a safe and effective manner. This is followed by a discussion of helicopter stability from a practical point of view. A flight test background will illustrate how helicopters are designed and built to be stable and how to utilize this natural stability to your advantage.
