See the link to a similar Q as it relates to helicopter gunships. The first use of helicopters were for medical evacuation. The Bell 47 fulfilled this role in the Korean War. I'll see if I can find the first use of an Army helicopter. Answer Answer See the link to a similar Q as it relates t…o helicopter gunships. The first use of military helicopters was for submarine spotting by the German navy in WW2. Helicopter combat testing was carried out in Germany before Sikorsky even left the ground in the USA.The Flettner 265 and Fl 282 helicopters flew off ship convoys in the baltic and mediteranean. The craft were also tested for dropping small depth charges and submarine marking flares. They were also tested for airsea rescue, medivac and could tow liferafts etc on cables.The much larger German Fa 223 was used during ww2 for rescue and recovery of crashed aircraft and was able to rescue downed pilots behind enemy lines and airlift the crashed aircraft themselves. The Fa 223 had a nose mounted Mg 15 machine gun and could carry substantial bomb and depth charge loads.The Fa 223 was used to airlift complete aircraft and light trucks y suspending them below on cables.German choppers were used for artillery spotting and flew recon in the defence of Berlin.they were tested in airlifting artillery , troops, ammunition and supplies for mountain warfare at mittenwald near Innsbruck. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64fgG2CnHn0 The first use of American helicopters were for medical evacuation.

Helicopters use aviation turbine fuel most commonly known as "Jet A". This fuel resembles kerosene, on which otheraircraft run.
Leonardo Da Vinci invented the concept of flight which includes helicopters. He should be known as an inventor, not an artist. Art does nothing to help people! Life would be nowhere without his inventions. Helicopters can be used in many different ways. Today, helicopters are used for transportati…on, for construction, for firefighting, search and rescue, and a variety of other jobs that require the special capabilities of the helicopter. Some police use them to monitor traffic, and catch speeders. They are used for emergency rescue such as grass fires. They are used for air ambulances when a patient needs to be rushed to a different hospital- because of their ability to take off and land vertically, and it doesn't need a runway. Military forces use helicopters to land men on the ground to fight. The military also transports food, missiles, needed medical equipment etc.. helicopters can also be used for recreation. Some people pay money to go up in a helicopter and fly over forests cities, and anything else that would look interesting from above. Helicopters are also used for Aerial photography, Motion picture photography, Electronic news gathering, search and rescue, travelling, and touring or personal pleasures. (MORE)
The type of fuel is specific to the type of engine, not the aircraft. Helicopters that have jet engines use jet fuel, and helicopters that have internal combustion engines use gasoline.. However the General Electric T-58 had a device in the fuel control that allowed you to burn just about anything …from avgas to jet fuel to kerosene. (MORE)
The use of helicopters during the Vietnam War vary, The UH-1 Iroquois (Huey) being the most popular example was used for transport, medevac, recon and some were fabricated with extra guns and rocket pods and became gunships, other examples are heavy lifters like the CH-54 Tarhe Skycrane, the CH-47 C…hinook and Search & Rescue helicopters like the HH-43 Huskie. The evolution of helicopters into what we have today was done here in my opinion, the development of the Cobra AH-1 Gunship wouldn't have come about then if it hadn't been for this war. (MORE)
Tanks were a NEW weapon during WWI. Aircraft Carriers were a NEW weapon in WWII. Helicopters were a NEW weapon in Vietnam. Helicopters allowed the US Army to create a brand new Infantry Branch, "Airmobile" Divisions. Prior to these new airmobile divisions, the army only had AIRBORNE (paratroopers) D…ivisions, MECHANIZED (armored personnel carriers) Divisions, and STRAIGHT LEG INFANTRY (often referred to as light infantry today) Divisions, strictly traditional FOOT SOLDIERS.

The Korean war was the first time Vertical Envelopment was used, orthe use of helicopters to assist troops in battle.
A helicopter on average burns around 75 gallons of gasoline perhour. That is, about 1.25 gallons of gas per minute.
Vertical Envelopment, or the use of helicopters in combat, was first introduced in the Korean war.
Yes you can fly a helicopter by using Bluetooth function on yoursmart phone. There are numerous toy helicopters which arecompatible with Bluetooth function.
Well, you can play with it with your Nintendog(s). The RC helicopter can fly in your control and you can change the screen modes too.
hi every1 I'm not sure what the name is but helicopters are made out of heavy metal, helicopters are engine powered due to them being made out of metal, helicopters could not be wind powered because of the wind not being able to lift the helicopter off the ground. sorry y about any spelling mistakes… I'm only 11 so... Answer Most helicopters in the past were made of aluminun, just like airplanes. The first ones had some wood construction, including wooden blades. The engine and controls are made of high-strength, forged parts. Some are steel and some are titanium (Ti6Al4V and other newer alloys). Modern helicopters are made of composite structure, such as E-glass and other fiber composite materials. The helicopter blades and the yoke are also made of woven composite materials that are baked in an oven. The landing gears are made from high-strength steel parts. (MORE)
The helicopter is still used today for military purposes such as delivering aid to countries and for news and traffic reports.
Helicopter pilots use maths in the following ways:- 1 To note the altitude of the chopper. 2 To note the speed of the chopper. 3 To calculate the speed of the upcoming storm. 4 During Landing
Helicopters can be equipped with either reciprocating (piston) engines or turbine (jet) engines. There is no reason to suspect that advances in electric batteries or hybrid engines will not permit electic motors from powering helicopters in the future as is already done with some small (model) helic…opters now. (MORE)
usually helicopters that are operational at high altitudes, that are reliable, and that are cheap (small).
Second World War. Germany was the first to use them, as air ambulances. The US followed shortly after, using them as observation and reconnaissance platforms.
Early helicopters all used piston engines up to the 1960's . Now most helicopters use jets, except for a few small civilian helicopters. The jets are connected to a very strong and complex transmission which turns the main and tail rotors.
By whom? I couldn't tell you what helicopters the airlines and private organizations would base out of RDU, but it's a bit unlikely they would. The police force at RDU isn't going to be particularly keen on letting people onto the tarmac who don't work there so they can board a helicopter, helicopte…rs don't really require an airport to operate out of, and it would be less expensive to use one of the smaller regional airports, and a bit less restrictive, as well, since RDU airport is a particularly high traffic area. If you're referring to the military helicopters, the NC Army National Guard has an activity at RDU where they keep AH-64 Apache and I believe OH-58 Kiowa helicopters. However, if you're seeing those flying overhead (which happens a lot here in Johnston County), it doesn't necessarily mean that's where they came from - those same helicopter types are also based at Fort Bragg, while you'll have other military helicopters based out of the various military installations in the area (Cherry Point MCAS, Pope AFB, Seymour Johnson AFB, Camp Lejune, etc.).

A helicopter can be used for transportation, recreation/ tours, cargo transportation, rescue, & as a "crane" as in sky crane.
The UH-1 Iroquois (Huey). Most used gunship helicopter was the AH-1 Cobra. UH=Utility Helicopter AH=Attack Helicopter
This really depends on the type of job that the pilot is doing. Helicopter pilots are used for such a wide variety of jobs but the average salary ranges from $45,000 to $90,000. Some jobs may even pay less while others have the potential to pay higher. There are so many different jobs out there for …helicopter pilots, it is a hard question to answer without being more specific. (MORE)
All of them. The Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy all use helicopters.
Helicopters are sometimes referred to as 'rotary wing' machines, and that gives the clue to how they operate. The rotating blade is of aerofoil section; as aircraft wings are; and the rotary wing develops lift due to its speed through the air. Helicopter blades also have a greater 'attack angle' tha…n do ordinary aircraft wings, and this gives them some of their lift, but at the expense of efficiency. Also, a helicopter blade is travelling through the wake of the previous blade, and this affects the efficiency, and the noise! And, it is only toward the tip of the blade that any decent lift is developed, once again losing some efficiency. For the inner part of the blade has a much lesser speed than the tip. [Whereas an aircraft wing is moving through smooth laminar air. And is all moving at the same speed.] (MORE)
The main rotor of a helicopter is actually a set of wings that turn. They produce lift, just like the wings of an airplane. To change direction, the rotor is tilted, and the helicopter is PULLED in that direction.
basically US Marines use the modern helicopters for their missions or the president does for transport.
Specifically designated reconnaissance choppers in the Viet war were the: H-21 Sioux; OH-6 Cayuse; and the OH-58 Kiowa.
When you are rescued by Mews from the ocean, you recuperate at his mansion. After you talk to him, drink some water and head downstairs. Before you can use the helicopter, you will need to know more about the cryptids. Watch the five videos in the Museum (first floor right), then Mews will reappear.… You will use the helicopter to reach four locations in the world where cryptids have been regularly reported. (MORE)
Go back inside the mansion and review the five videos while you wait for Mews to show up. When you are rescued by Mews from the ocean, you recuperate at his mansion.

Go to the right inside the mansion and review the five videos in the Cryptids Museum. Once you enter the helicopter, press any of the locations on the GPS to go to that location. (It is helpful to go in the order they are arranged.) Bigfoot Chase Glitch When you have gotten a footprint of the Yeti, and proved the other three cryptids (Nessie, chupacabra, Jersey Devil), you will go to the Pacific Northwest in pursuit of Bigfoot. There, you will follow Bigfoot in the helicopter until he reaches the caves where he lives. *If the helicopter or Bigfoot stops moving, you should try to leave that location or reboot your browser. Some players have reported the game locking up at this time. Some options: 1) Exit to the Store by selecting the star and playing the free Earth Day game, then return to Cryptids. 2) Restart the island completely (a tough decision) by selecting the small map and pressing the blue "restart island" button 3) Buy the Haunted House card (free) from the Poptropica store, which lets you exit to the Island map and return. This may or may not affect the glitch when you reach Bigfoot again. (MORE)
Hemi If you mean model helicopters, in most cases, they use small permanent magnet DC motors for both the tail rotor and the main rotor. Some more sophisticated models use a 'brushless DC motor' which is actually a three phase permanent magnet motor, and a compact electronic variable frequency AC …inverter for speed control. If you mean REAL helicopters........ Smaller helicopters commonly have 'flat-four' or 'flat-six' piston-type aircraft engines, mounted with the crankshaft vertical. They have a clutch that engages to drive the 'wing' (the top rotor) and the tail rotor once the engine has started, and the clutch can be disengaged to allow the helicopter to 'auto-rotate' if the engine fails in flight. There is also a 6:1 gearbox in the drive train, as the 'wing' rotates at about 450 RPM, but the engine runs at about 2700 RPM at full speed. Older helicopters had 9 or 18 cylinder radial aircraft engines to drive the spinning bits. The engine - clutch - gearbox system is usually mounted directly behind the cabin, often in line with the rotor vertical main shaft, behind the cockpit. Larger helicopters have one or two turbine engines - these develop more horsepower per pound and per cubic foot than piston engines, and spin at 10,000 plus RPM. While they have fewer moving bits and don't need high-octane petrol, they need more care to keep them reliable and are a bit more delicate internally. Turbine engines are small enough that they can be mounted in the top structure of the helicopter, increasing cabin space. Turbine engines can usually be identified by the awful howling noise they make, or if they aren't howling, by the huge exhaust pipe (6 - 10 inches in diameter). (MORE)
Born on the battlefield(s) of South Vietnam, the US Army used the gunship (AH-1 Cobra) as aerial artillery firing mini-guns (7.62mm), 40mm grenade, and 2.75 inch rockets.
it depends. sometimes they make the helicopter turn. On models when they are facing up like the main rotor, they propell it forward so the gyro can fall to one side and lean the chopper forward. . The major purpose of the back rotor is to counteract the torque of the main rotor. On helicopters with… a single top rotor, if there were no back rotor, the torque would cause the helicopter to spin around as soon as it lifted off the ground. (MORE)
To fly you normally press Y and then click, hold and move were you want to go. To land its normally X. To fire you normally press F.
Soon after WW2 helicopters became very popular, reaching a peak ofuse in the Vietnam war, when the US Army and Marines had morehelicopters than all the services regular airplanes
Unless 1903 was was a mistake I am pretty sure helicopters were invented in 1940.
Most helicopters use as transportation, some are use for combat. ANS 2 - Many helicopters are used for rescue andmedivac. Many others are used in fire-fighting.
The Germans built a few experimental helicopters before WW2, but never put any into production. The first production German helicopter was the MBB 105, about 1966
If you're referring to Gallipoli in the context of the (in)famous battle then the answer is no. That fight occurred during WWI and the helicopter was not a practical machine at the time.
Several. . OH-6 Cayuse, MH-6 "Little Bird", and other variants of the H-6 series . OH-58 Kiowa . AH-1 Cobra (still in service with some second line units) . AH-64 Apache . UH-60 Blackhawk, MH-60, and other variants of the H-60 series . CH-47 Chinook, MH-47, and other variants of the H…-47 series On a side note, the Army is the only branch which operates the H-47 series (CH-47, MH-47, etc.) and the only branch which does NOT operate the H-53 series (CH-53, MH-53, etc.) (MORE)
Many small ones have gasoline engines. Most large and military helicopters have jet turbines, connected to a transmission that drives the rotor.
The Marines use many helicopters. Their most common helicopter is probably the AH-1 W Super Cobra

For lifting heavy objects that would be awkward or hard for a regular crane to do.
Helicopters are made with sophisticated specialized engines and heavy materials which is fueled with special gas. They are also made of steel which makes it really heay.
Helicopters where used in several medical settings both Civil and Military. One of the most famous of these helicopters was the Bell H-13 Sioux most noted in the show M.A.S.H.
Piston engines on small private helicopters and jets on almost all commercial and military helicopterd
The Chinook helicopter is an American twin-engine helicopter. The helicopter is used by military forces. The Chinook helicopter is mainly used for troop transportation, artillery movement, and resupply on the battlefield.
The Comanche helicopter is used for attacks designed for the United States Army, they are manufactured by Boeing Helicopters and Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation.
The military helicopter, also known as the Huey, are used for command and control, transportation, and also assault gunships. These helicopters are the most famous military helicopters.
