Past, present and future of the helicopter
For the curious who reach the end of this article, we are going to review the history of the helicopter and its main curiosities. This rotary-wing aircraft has its precursor in an invention of Spanish origin. It was Juan de la Cierva who, in 1920, created the so-called autogiro, a hybrid between an aeroplane and a helicopter that made use of the power of rotors.
These rotors provide stability to the apparatus without the need for movement, and this is one of the main advantages of this means of transport; its ease of take-off and landing. As with any new invention, many people actively participated in its improvement and production. The inventor of the first piloted and motorised helicopter was the Argentinian Raúl Pateras de Pescara, and the first fully controllable in-flight, mass-produced helicopter was developed by Igor Sikorsky in 1942.
Military use, rescue in areas difficult to access or maritime zones, commercial transactions, passenger transport in large cities or leisure are some of the main uses of this increasingly popular means of transport.
