'Moggy's Tuna Manual' is based on five years of experience flying Bell 47's and Hughes 500's off Taiwanese and Korean tuna fishing vessels in the Western Pacific. Francis Meyrick describes the risks, the thrills and the beauty of nature. His stories include wry humour, first person accounts, and many cautionary tales. But his main emphasis is on safety: tips, anecdotes and techniques to fly safely and successfully. He dedicates his book "To all my tuna friends and in memory of too many guys who didn't make it home..." Francis has logged over 12,500 flight hours including a wide variety of helicopter applications all over the world. Based on this personal experience, 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. Written with humility and respect for Man and Nature, this manual will appeal to all helicopter addicts.
