A Helicopter is a type of aircraft used for a variety of purposes, ranging from recon and transport to offensive maneuvers. Some historians atribute the theoretical creation of the helicopter to Leonardo Da Vinci [1], whom drew pictures of a then fictional flying machine. Their first military use was during World War II. [2] afterwards they were used frequently, and became a staple of the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War.
