Moggy's Tuna Manual

418 pages4 hours


Francis 'Moggy' Meyrick has logged over 12,500 flight hours including a wide variety of helicopter applications all over the world. His 'Tuna Manual' describes the many pitfalls that face raw, inexperienced recruits to the 'Tuna Fields'. Both low-time pilots and experienced pilots have praised this safety initiative as a sincere effort to mitigate the world-wide sky-high accident rate in the Tuna Helicopter Industry.
Moggy spent five years flying Bell 47's and Hughes 500's off Taiwanese and Korean tuna fishing vessels in the Eastern Pacific. He does not hide his own mistakes and near-disasters, and his tales include wry humour, first person accounts, and many cautionary tales.
Written with humility and respect for Man and Nature, this manual will appeal to all helicopter addicts.
