From snow-capped mountains and forests of tall redwoods to scorching deserts and beautiful beaches, California is known for its beautiful and diverse landscapes. And while driving through them can be a fun experience, flying is truly the best way to see it all. But, once you’ve decided to travel by air, you’ve now got to choose how: fixed wing or rotary wing?
Fixed wing aircraft are airplanes, gliders, and other aircraft capable of flight based on the shape of their wings and the airflow over and under the wing. Fixed wings tend to be faster, capable of flying at higher altitudes, and for longer distances, making them more ideal for seeing better views in places that are farther apart. They’re also an affordable and safe way to see the sights because they don’t vibrate as much as rotary wings, so they can fly more smoothly and linearly, decreasing the chances of motion or airsickness. Also, because fixed wings are able to fly faster and for longer distances at lower operating costs, they generally give you more bang for your buck.
Rotary wings are helicopters and other such aircraft that fly with rotating blades. They’re a new and exciting way to see new sights because they’re versatile. You can land in excluded and exotic locations more easily in a rotary wing than a fixed wing. And, because helicopters can hover, they can fly through turbulence when a fixed wing would be grounded. While rotary wings are generally the more tumultuous method of flying and therefore not a great idea for those prone to motion sickness, advancements in rotary wing technology have decreased vibrations and excess noise, leveling the comfort difference between fixed wing and rotary wing.
