Even though the concept of the helicopter is arguably older than that of the airplane, there is still a great amount of research and advancement yet to occur. As the political climate of our world continues to change and military conflicts approach the small-scale urban warfare of recent years, the importance of the helicopter will continue to grow. It is rather ironic that an idea first conceived long before the Common Era will be key to winning military conflicts in the 21st century.
