From DaVinci's 'aerial screw,' to the Wright bat, and falling maple seeds - spinning wings have long fascinated humans.

Today’s drones, autogiros, and helicopters are direct descendants of these early spinning wings. In this episode of STEM in 30 we'll take a look at the unique features of helicopters, explore their uses, dive into their history and even take a flight with some of the best trained pilots there are.

This episode is made possible by the generous support of Safran.
