The Versatile Flying Machines
Since its first flight in 1907 initiated by the French engineer Paul Cornu, the helicopter and other rotary wing aircrafts have quickly gained their aeronautical nobility. The main advantage of these machines is their ability to perform vertical and hovering flight which allows them to fulfill numerous civil and military missions.
Helicopters' versatility of use is countless: transport of goods or people, oil and gas exploration, mountain rescue, fight against forest fires, travel in areas difficult to access ... A use that will continue to develop between now and 2050, in particular with the emergence of flying taxis for the short distance transport of people. The helicopter sector should continue its development aiming at reducing noise pollution and CO2 emissions.
