General

Helicopters can take off and land vertically and can stay in the air (by “Hovering”). When the main shaft axis (rotation plane) of the propeller is tilted, that is, the direction of the lift force created by the propeller is changed, the helicopter moves BACK and FORTH - RIGHT and LEFT. Thus, the helicopter moves in the air. Since the propeller is constantly rotating (due to the moment it creates on the fuselage), it also tries to rotate the helicopter's fuselage. To prevent this, a smaller propeller is used at the tail of the helicopter. The propeller in the tail absorbs the moment of rotation (torque) on the fuselage. In addition, the rotation of fuselage can be achieved by changing the amount of damping. Military Helicopters are manufactured for various purposes such as;

  1. Attack Helicopters,
  2. Reconnaissance & Surveillance Helicopters,
  3. General Purpose Helicopters,
  4. Ambulance Helicopters

Purpose of Training
