This will be my last post i just wanted to say thank you to all of the people who took the time to read my blog if you are still interested in planes and helicopters look on youtube and you can find many videos that you can watch telling you about helicopters and planes thanks again for reading and  goodbye
Today we are going to be talking about how helicopters are made. They are made by first making the body. First the mane body is made where the pilot sits. Then the tail is riveted on and then the next step is galvanising. The metal is galvanised so it will not rust, The next step is integrating the the engine. the engine is dropped into the helicopter and then the switches are attached so you can start the engine remotely. Then the interior is put in and all of the doors and windows are put in. Then the controls are put in along with the dials. Finally it is pained to desired colour and the blades are put on and then the helicopter is complete.

Today were are going to be talking about what is better planes or helicopters. Planes are better as they can travel long distances without stopping for fuel and can travel very fast in the air. Helicopters are better for getting into tight spaces as they don't need a runway to take off where airplanes need a long runway. You can go higher altitudes with planes compared to helicopters. There is one type of plane that would make me think planes are better and it is the harrier jet. The harrier jet can take off and land vertical like a helicopter and can go very fast speeds like a plane so it is the ultimate mix of plane and helicopter. Harrier jets are made in American and the original design was from the Bristol engine company

How Airplanes work

How do are Airplanes Work? Airplanes work by an engine powering them to go forward. They work by the engine producing so much power that it accelerates so fast that it provides lift. The flaps on the wings move so it forces air underneath the plane so it lifts off the ground and into the air. When they get into the air they use flaps that force the air underneath one side and above another side which then forces the plane to turn in the air to go up the air goes under the wings to provide lift and to go down the air is forced above the wind to make the plane go down.

Today I am going to be talking about how helicopters work. Helicopters work because there is less air pressure on top of the wing, this causes suction and makes the wing move up. A helicopter's rotor blades are wings and create lift. An airplane must fly fast to move enough air over its wings to provide lift. A helicopter moves air over its rotor by spinning its blades. A helicopter steers by tilting the swash plate which changes the pitch of the blades to provide forward, backward and side to side lift. Here is a video that you can watch to tell you how it works. Helicopters are amazing vehicles. They can land in spots where other modes of transport can go. They are agile and can be used for fighting they are a great invention.
