Rotory wing aircraft; Helicopter. Normally used in conjuction with the term "Phlyer", or "Driver", meaning "pilot". May originate with a cartoon drawn by Capt. Ed Cooke and which accompanies a popular article by Harry Reasoner, "Helicopter Pilots Are Different."

A rotary wing aircraft, usually associated with a helicopter, however & to be fair can also be used to describe an autogyro
Do I really need to draw a picture for this one? If you ever saw a video of a helicopter accident you would understand why I refer to them as a flingwing!
