Helicopter without pilots – level 1

16-02-2022 15:00

A Black Hawk is a helicopter. Soldiers use it. Last week, the helicopter flies without pilots.

It happens at Fort Campbell, US. There are two flights. One flight is 30 minutes long. The helicopter flies through a city. It is not a real city. A computer makes it. Then, the helicopter lands.

The helicopter uses special technology. The technology makes it possible to fly without a pilot. A computer controls it.

The technology is very good for pilots. The helicopter can fly at night. It can fly when the weather is bad. Pilots can do other things.

Difficult words: helicopter (an aircraft which flies, and it has no wings), soldier (a person who fights when there is a war), flight (when something flies).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
