The Admiralty and the Helicopter - Due Q1 2018
« on: June 01, 2017, 12:45:09 pm »
Afternoon Chaps,

New month, new season, new book.

James Jackson has been working on this for a while and should be available for Telford.


Blue Envoy Press are pleased to announce The Admiralty and the Helicopter by James Jackson.
A companion volume to The Air Staff and the Helicopter, this latest addition to the Project Tech Profile series charts the development of the Admiralty’s pioneering requirements and the numerous projects and design studies drawn up to fulfil them from the early 1950s to the present day. These range from the cancelled Bristol Type 191 tandem-rotor helicopter and the tiny Fairey Ultra-Light of the 1950s, the Westland Wasp, Wessex and Sea King of the 1960s, the aborted plans to acquire Chinooks to the more recent Westland Lynx, EHI Merlin and Leonardo Wildcat. Also covered are the weapons, including anti-submarine homing torpedoes and seaskimming anti-ship missiles, developed to equip the Fleet Air Arm’s helicopters.
The Admiralty and the Helicopter draws on archive material, new artwork, stunning paintings by Luciano Alviani and photographs to show how the Fleet Air Arm’s helicopters have continually evolved to fulfil ever more diverse roles.
The Blue Envoy team will be working on it over the summer and hope to have it available for IPMS 2017 at Telford. James, better known as ‘Hood’ and a regular contributor on SPF, has had a long term interest in naval matters and The Admiralty and the Helicopter draws from years of research in the field.
Chris, James and Luciano
