Helicopters

Have you ever wondered how helicopters are piloted?

Harry is a helicopter pilot. You will learn in these 6 pages how he manages to control his aircraft.

First, you need to be aware that Harry uses 2 levers (called the collective and the cyclic) which work the main rotor as well as his feet (the rudder) which operate the tail rotor.
