Learn about Military Helicopters

Military Helicopters: A military helicopter is a helicopter that is either specifically built or converted for use by military forces. A military helicopter's mission is a function of its design or conversion. The most common use of military helicopters is transport of troops, but transport helicopters can be modified or converted to perform other missions such as combat search and rescue (CSAR), medical evacuation (MEDEVAC), airborne command post, or even armed with weapons for attacking ground targets.

Learn More about Commercial Helicopters

Commercial Helicopter:  A helicopter is a type of rotorcraft in which lift and thrust are supplied by rotors. This allows the helicopter to take off and land vertically, to hover, and to fly forward, backward, and laterally. These attributes allow helicopters to be used in congested or isolated areas where fixed-wing aircraft and many forms of VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) aircraft cannot perform.  Learn More About Commercial Helicopters.

Learn More about RC Helicopters

RC Helicopter: A Radio-controlled helicopter (also RC helicopter) is model aircraft which is distinct from a RC airplane because of the differences in construction, aerodynamics, and flight training. Several basic designs of RC helicopters exist, of which some (such as those with collective pitch control) are more maneuverable than others. The more maneuverable designs are often harder to fly, but benefit from greater aerobatic capabilities.  Learn More About RC Helicopters.

Robinson R22 Helicopter Hovering Video

The Robinson R-22 Helicopter is one of the most popular helicopters in the world.  It is used for flight training, livestock mustering to patrolling pipelines because of it's dependability, low operating costs and performance.

Military Helicopters Must Fly Faster

After taking severe casualties over Iraq/Afghanistan, the U.S. Army has "seen the light" and now realizes its helicopters must fly FASTER and FARTHER than the WW1 biplane speeds it plods along in the daylight skies in absurd DARK OD GREEN. Even the intellectually-challenged marines know to have their aircraft painted in light gray for effective camouflage.

Fly in a Huey Helicopter while in Cape Town

This is an awesome video of the Huey Helicopter.  The video is of a ride that's available in Cape Town, Africa.  The riders get to ride in a Huey that's flown as a pilot would have flown in the Vietnam War.  The video is well put together and has some great inside and outside shots of the Huey Helicopter.

I know I want to get to Cape Town and go for a ride!  Looks like a ton of fun!

 

Airbus EC135 Helicopter Takeoff Video

This is a cool video of a Eurocopter EC135 Rotorcraft taking off in a really tight area.  The helicopter takes off in a area surrounded by houses and trees. The helicopter video looks like a home video taken from inside a person's home.  It's hard to believe anyone would land/takeoff from such a small enclosed area.

And the video add a cool effect of making the helicopter rotor is hardly moving while the EC135 is in flight.

 

Airbus EC120 Takeoff and Landing Video

This is a short video of a Eurocopter EC120 taking off an landing.  The EC120 is a single engine helicopter that is a five-seat multi-purpose helicopter.   The EC120 lightweight rotary-wing aircraft integrates the most modern technologies, including a new-generation Fenestron® tail rotor for low operating noise and maximum flight control efficiency, crashworthy seats and fuel system, and the Vehicle and Engine Multifunction Display (VEMD) for pilots.
