How does a helicopter get its lifting force?
Step 1 of 3
The helicopter gets lifting a blade pushes down and air pushes back up on blades, as shown in the below figure. Helicopters generate their lift via their rotor blade. Some helicopters have one main rotor head supported by a tail rotor which counteracts the torque produced by the main rotor head. Some helicopters use a tandem rotor head system.
