Helicopters are classified as rotary wing aircraft so that they can be distinguished from fixed-wing aircraft. The rotor, on the other hand, is the rotating part of the aircraft that allows the aerodynamic sustenance of the ship.
It is essential to point out that the main rotor is located on a mast in the upper part of the helicopter, and the tail rotor consists of a propeller applied to the tail beam of the helicopter. The former causes lift and thrust, while the tail rotor only pokes.
Helicopters have several advantages over airplanes. While the aircraft is unprecedented in terms of speed, range (i.e., the ability to make long trips without stopping for fuel), and the ability to reach great heights, the helicopter has several features that outperform the aircraft, which are listed below.
Firstly, there is the possibility of taking off and landing on a vertical trajectory. The helicopter can rest on the top of a skyscraper, a clearing, middle of the jungle, and top of a mountain.
It should be noted that in a helicopter there is the possibility to fly slowly and, if required, to remain static in the air, which makes it the ideal means to carry out rescue operations, search, control observation, etc.
One of the main differences concerning airplanes, which are characterized by always moving forward, helicopters can move in all directions. That is, right, left, up, down, and it is even possible to move backward.
The helicopter is much more complex and challenging to manufacture and to pilot than the airplane. For this reason, its appearance in the skies of the whole world has been delayed concerning the airplane.
