1 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Transportation Camp Christopher Urban Commander, U.S. Navy (retired Navy pilot) SUNYIT Department of Computer and Information Sciences.

2 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Agenda A little about me Discussion of helicopters Two of my favorite helicopter pilots Short helicopter video Discussion of "roads in the sky" A fun project for you to do at home A surprise finish for today

3 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME

4 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME

5 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME UKRANIAN ENGINEER IGOR SIKORSKY IS CREDITED WITH BUILDING THE WORLD'S FIRST HELICOPTER IN 1909, BUT IT WAS MORE THAN 25 YEARS BEFORE EARLY PRACTICAL MACHINES, LIKE THE VS-300 WAS FLOWN. VS-300

9 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME UKRANIAN ENGINEER IGOR SIKORSKY IS CREDITED WITH BUILDING THE WORLD'S FIRST HELICOPTER IN 1909, BUT IT WAS MORE THAN 25 YEARS BEFORE EARLY PRACTICAL MACHINES - LIKE THE VS-300 (PICTURED) WAS FLOWN IN PRE-WAR TRIALS.

10 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Derives from a Greek word meaning “Helical Wing” or “Rotating Wing” Rotary wing aircraft: lift is produced by turning rotor blades which are airfoils

11 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Do not need runways. Provides lift without the aircraft having to move forward. May be used in congested or isolated areas. May perform task which fixed wing aircraft can not.

12 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME What is a Helicopter? Unique Features –Rotating-wing vehicles –Ability to hover –Land and take-off vertically –Fly forward, backward and sideways Helicopters are closely related to autogyros and tiltrotors.

13 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Motivation The overall unique aspect of a helicopter is it’s ability to hover for extended periods of time. The ability to hover it a very useful attribute. –An good example is that of a hummingbird.

14 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME With this ability to hover, helicopters can perform a wide range of missions. Helicopters at Work

15 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME

16 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Comparison of Fixed-Wing Aircraft and Helicopters Fixed Wing Aircraft

17 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Helicopters are subjected to the same four forces of flight as a fixed wing aircraft.

18 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME HOVER

19 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME

20 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME MOVEMENT

21 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Configurations of Rotorcraft Many different ways to counter Reactive Torque

22 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Configurations of Rotorcraft Main Rotor - Tail Rotor Config.

23 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Configurations of Rotorcraft Tandem Rotors (Chinook)

24 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Configurations of Rotorcraft Coaxial Rotors (Kamov KA-52)

25 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Configurations of Rotorcraft NOTAR Helicopter

26 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Configurations of Rotorcraft Tilt Rotor (BA 609)

27 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Distinct Differences Between Helicopters Fixed Wing Aircraft Rotary wings Ability to hover Ability to fly “along” all axes Vertical takeoff, landing, and the ability to fly backwards.

28 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Range Altitude Speed

29 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Two of My Favorite Helicopter Pilots Igor Sikorsky Wendy Lawrence

30 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Short Helicopter Video

31 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Air Traffic Control: Roads in the Sky &zoom=10http://vfrmap.com/?type=vfrc&lat=43.158&lon= &zoom=10

32 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME A Project for You to do at Home Build a great flying paper and balsa wood airplane

33 STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROME Let's Go See/Touch/Sit Inside a Helicopter A helicopter is going to land at SUNYIT for us
