Like a lot of other things, it's probably gotten it's nickname from a shortened version of heliCOPTER. Likely started getting called a copter, then chopper? Just a thoughtKickin it - flybar style.

it got its name from the sound a huey made as it was flying in to get the troops out in Vietnam. The two blades of a huey have a very distinct sound as they are flying towards you. "chop chop chop". That is where the name came from as far as the military channel is concerned. Lol they had a special on them a few years ago.TRex600Nitro YS 50 JR9303Converted to 2.4 TJ Pro

I'm pretty sure it was a term used exclusivly for the Huey because of it's very distinct sound but then civilians adopted it and made it generic to all types of helis.

It 100% refers to the sound though.

It was coined in the VietNam war for the sound a UH1E makes on the way in to you.

Hoover is an Slang term for the US Navy S-3B Viking.
because it literally sounded like a vacuum cleaner.

And I got Solman beat for grim USN accidents.
I saw a guy walk through the prop on an E-2C Hawkeye.

instant blender was not pretty at all.

Talking about accidents,look at these guys running for thier lives.Mi-26 shortening the tail blades.

Those blades are enormous.

So with the new helicopters that are designed to be quieter (like the EC-135 with a fenestron tail), I assume they are using 4 narrow main rotor blades instead of 2 large blades to decrease the rotor noise?
