What is unique about helicopters?
A helicopter can take off or land without a runway. It can turn in the air in ways airplanes cannot. The helicopter is unique in that it is able to take off and land vertically. It is also capable of hovering, flying forward, backward, and laterally. It also can hover in one spot in the air without moving.
How are they useful?
They can fly almost anywhere. They are used to rescue people from disasters such as fires, floods, and earthquakes. Helicopters can quickly carry injured people to a hospital. They can even land on the roofs of some hospitals and other buildings. And they are great for sightseeing, quiet enough to allow conversations between passengers and pilot, and pilot’s informative narration.
Helicopters are also called choppers, copter, eggbeaters, helos, whirlybirds. This card is LOOSELY based on the Airbus H225.
Who do I send it to?
Give this card to a graduate, to a pilot on his or her birthday, to a friend going on a sightseeing tour, send to a helicopter technician just because, or use it to honor your favorite active duty service member or veteran. For an Albertville high school reunion.
This card is in honor of Albertville Alabama Regional Airport, and Thomas J Brumlik Field.

N.B. aviation geeks:
