A helicopter is a type of Muggle aircraft where lift and thrust are supplied by rotating blades.

In his first year, Draco Malfoy told long, boastful stories about his skill at flying on a broom that always seemed to end with him narrowly escaping from Muggles in helicopters.[1]

On 2 August of 1995, a helicopter that almost crashed in a field in Surrey was reported on the seven o'clock news.[2]

Wizards and witches seem to have the unfortunate habit of crashing into helicopters with usually fatal results, such as Fabius Watkins, legendary Quidditch Captain and Chaser for the Montrose Magpies in 1975,[3] and an unnamed individual in September of 1991.[4]

On 24 June, 1996, the Millennium Bridge was attacked by Fenrir Greyback and a group of Death Eaters. Several helicopters were used to investigate the bridge's destruction.[5]
