Any good books?

Recommended Posts

Hey All, there are loads of good books written by Huey pilots, just wondering if anyone knows any similar books by mi8 pilots?


Had a quick google but nothing really.

I have been looking myself. You search in English, nothing. Search in Russian, LOTS! I searched for MI-8 Pilot stories books, in Russian ( Ми-8 Piulot рассказы книги ). Try this, in Google Chrome Translate. Or Yandex.ru translate.




There are still no good translation engines from Russianm to English apparently. A friend of mine told me the other day that his grandfather used to be a translator for MI5, and he would translate from Russian to English... via Mandarin! Chap spoke 26 languages apparently!

The only book I read so far is Gunship ace, The wars of Neall Ellis.

This guy seemed to use Russian kit through his entire mercenary helicopter life.


As a single pilot he took off and engaged insurgents in a hind, flew some old dog MI-8s and just generally got the job done with minimal fuss right up to Afganistan. not a true first person right up but not bad.

HP G2 Reverb, Windows 10 VR settings: IPD is 64.5mm, High image quality, G2 reset to 60Hz refresh rate as standard. OpenXR user, Open XR tool kit disabled.

DCS: Pixel Density 1.0, Forced IPD at 55 (perceived world size), 0 X MSAA, 0 X SSAA. My real IPD is 64.5mm. Prescription VROptition lenses installed. VR Driver system: I9-9900KS 5Ghz CPU. XI Hero motherboard and RTX 3090 graphics card, 64 gigs Ram, No OC at the mo. MT user  (2 - 5 fps gain).

Vaicom user. Thrustmeter warthog user. MFG pedals with damper upgrade.... and what an upgrade! Total controls Apache MPDs set to virtual Reality height with brail enhancements to ensure 100% button activation.. Simshaker Jet Pro vibration seat.. Uses data from DCS not sound.... you know when you are dropping into VRS with this bad boy.
