Helicopters are used for tourism, transport and for search and rescue missions.
Helicopters can also carry large buckets of water to fight forest fires.
The first ever helicopter was flown in 1907.
Unlike airplanes, helicopters can fly backwards and sideways.
Helicopters actually have two spinning blades. One large one on top and one small one on the tail.
The small blades on the tail of the helicopter keep it stable in the air.
