History of HelicoptersHelicopters: Necessities of War and Travel
From the first flight in the early 1900s to present day
The history of helicopters intrigues not only war buffs, but those interested in rotor motor systems and the evolution of aircraft. Since its first flight in 1906, the helicopter has had the unique ability to hover as well as fly forward and backward; attributes that other aircraft do not share. Its history is abundantly shown in items such as stamps, vintage magazines, aircraft manuals, and toys. Even in the modern age, helicopter memorabilia remains interesting and fun for both adults and children.
