HELICOPTER- NAVIGATION

Ares G. Bogosian

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The Whirley Bird, the Chopper or the Frantic Palm are names we have heard applied to the helicopter. But those of you who have had experience with this wonderful machine, I’m sure, have developed a deep respect for it, and a keen interest in its use. No small part of this respect and interest has been due to its use in errands of mercy and rescue. If current trends offer a measure for the future, 30 to 50-passenger helicopters should be in operation by 1960. But there is room for improvement in the use of the helicopter by proiiding better engines, rotors, airframes and instrumentation to exploit its full potentialities.
