Is learning to fly a helicopter safe?
Absolutely. The technology involved in the manufacture of helicopters is extremely advanced and there are strict quality controls throughout the process. Most helicopter miss-haps are caused by either pilot error or neglecting very strict maintenance requirements.
Is it difficult to fly a helicopter?
It is a challenge to learn to fly a helicopter but, like learning any new skill, it becomes easier with practice and experience. It is more involved than flying an aero plane due to the aerodynamics and control inputs required. However, once the basics are mastered, it is not hard to fly.
Can a helicopter land if the engine stops?
Most certainly. Helicopters are designed to “autorotate” meaning the blades will keep turning without engine power allowing the helicopter to be flown to the ground safely. It is highly unlikely that any aircraft engine will just stop without warning. They are extremely reliable and all of the helicopters in service are exceptionally well maintained by experienced engineers.
