Why Helicopters Work That Way

I've never studied helicopter aerodynamics, but I witnessed a helicopter crash once, and the event was consistent with the theory that it's principally the integrity of the tail rotor that prevents the helicopter from behaving the way the bluebird expects, but the chicken has an excellent point.

Also as the days get darker and the weather outside arbitrary northern hotels gets bleaker, I'm tending to agree with these chickens.

I've always liked the idea that while planes glide through the air, helicopters beat it into submission.

Pleased to see you're still plugging along here.
Also pleased to see a question about helo aerodynamics.

Retired now from my EMS job almost three years, I dream about going back to work.
-Just remember, helicopters are more like birds than airplanes.
