How do helicopters slow down?

Unlike a plane, which can glide a large distance with no power, a helo has no way to slow down—or so the thinking goes. Actually, helicopters have a built-in mechanical control called the collective pitch lever that allows them to descend slowly and land even if the engine dies. This maneuver is called autorotation.

Should helicopters fly?

A helicopter does not want to fly. It is maintained in the air by a variety of forces and controls working in opposition to each other, and if there is any disturbance in this delicate balance, the helicopter stops flying, immediately and disastrously. There is no such thing as a gliding helicopter.

What happens if a helicopter tail rotor fails?

If the tail rotor fails in flight, engine torque can no longer be countered by the tail rotor, and uncontrolled spinning of the aircraft is a possibility. Most manufacturers call for an immediate autorotation. Some call for a running landing, instead.
