Since the aircraft’s invention, there has been a long line of helicopter innovations. However, it is difficult to pinpoint when exactly this vehicle was invented.

Many would say that Louis Breguet’s ‘Gyroplane Laboratoire’ was the first true helicopter. Still, some attest that Leonardo Da Vinci had small working models of his famous ‘aerial screw.’ Others point out that children in China since the 5th century A.D., played with small bamboo flying tops that were based on a concept similar to contemporary helicopters. Whatever their exact origins, rotary-wing aircraft have proven invaluable.

From search and rescue to pleasure flights to heavy lift transport, the helicopter is a versatile and useful vehicle. Its ability to takeoff and land vertically as well as hover midair gives it undeniable advantages over fixed-wing airplanes.
