Helicopters are all about making life easier and more convenient. Whether it’s Elon Musk using a helicopter to investigate a potential UK site for a Tesla factory; a rescue team airlifting an injured hiker to hospital; or a construction team transporting parts across difficult terrain, the helicopter is often the fastest, safest and most efficient travel option.
