    Using a Helicopter



    Personal Helicopter

    This section was a contribution of the British Helicopter Advisory Board

    Since the first mass produced helicopter appeared in 1946, this revolutionary mode of transport has progressed at a rate even eclipsing that of fixed-wing aviation. In comparison to their rather agricultural beginnings, helicopters on the market nowadays are smooth, reliable, comfortable and quiet machines, which owe only their basic principle of flight to the pioneering aircraft of earlier years.

    Modern corporate helicopters can carry between three and fourteen passengers in a comfortable environment at speeds approaching 200 mph.
