How will the helicopter fly?  | Mechanism of working of a helicopter

helicopter Helicopter can do the things which the aeroplane can’t do and it can rise up from the place it is there without running on a runway. It can stop and land in the desired position, it can rotate round also. The main reasons for this are the rotor, drive shaft, cockpit, tail rotor and landing skids. There will be a fan over the helicopter and this arrangement is called as the main rotor. By the rotation of the wings, the helicopter rises up and the strength to lift the helicopter is given by the special engine. The fan pushes the air surrounding it towards down and this is the action. The reaction is that the helicopter rises up. There should be a reaction for the action of rising of the helicopter and so there is tail rotor in the wings of the tail which gives the strength for the reaction. As the wings near the tail rotate, the helicopter is constant even after rising up. There is same motor for both the fans.

There are two types of controls in the cockpit near the pilot. One is cyclic control and another one is collective control. With the help of cyclic control, the pilot is able to move the helicopter in right, left, up and down directions. The collective control is used to rotate it up and down. The pedals which control the tail rotor are near the legs of the pilot. The helicopter was designed by an engineer before 75 years.
