A squirrel sets out to cross the Atlantic non-stop. Another climbs to the summit of Mount Everest. Eight US Navy helicopters leave to free American hostages in Iran. A Hughes OH-6 rescues nuns trapped in combat in Vietnam. A Sikorsky crashes in Chad while chasing a camel. At all latitudes, in all circumstances, the helicopter takes part in the most extraordinary human adventures. The unlikely machine that made its combat debut in 1944 has become a technological monster over the decades. In just thirty years, its power, its load capacity and its autonomy have increased fifty-fold. But despite cascading technical revolutions, one element has remained unchanged: the pilot, with his strengths and weaknesses, so human.
