** In Aunt Dimity and the Duke'', the Duke of Penford (in Cornwall) provided the local physician with a helicopter for his use. Emma Porter learns of it from the estate mechanic. When she expresses surprise at the idea, he tells her, "Yes, well, Dr. Singh had to have one, and since the village needed him, His Grace got him his chopper." The chopper later comes in handy when [[spoiler: the duke's cousin, fashion model Susannah Ashley-Woods is found unconscious from a head injury and airlifted to hospital in Portsmouth]].

* In ''[[AuntDimity Aunt Dimity's Christmas]]'', when a vagrant collapses unconscious in Lori and Bill's driveway, the couple bring him inside. Willis Sr. calls in an [=RAF=] rescue helicopter to transport the man to hospital in Oxford (in part because the roads were blocked after a blizzard). Various neighbours express astonishment when they repeatedly ask Lori, "Did you really call out the [=RAF=] to rescue a tramp?" Peggy Kitchen ("shopkeeper, postmistress, and undisputed mistress of Finch") roared, "In a helicopter! Seems the lap of luxury to me."

* In ''VideoGame/DoubleDragonI'', at the start of the game, the player characters come out of a garage with a Ferari in it, while an engine roar plays. In [[VideoGame/DoubleDragonII the sequel]], they come out of a garage with a helicopter in it, to the sound of rotor blades whirring. Even though the heli is quite clearly motionless, and having it running in the garage makes even less sen-- ''Sorry, RuleOfCool! Shutting up now!''

* In one of DaveBarry's fan-mail columns where he asked his readers to name the worst commercial they'd ever seen, one [[RunningGag alert reader]] nominated his local radio station running advertisements for the fact that they had a helicopter.

* In the ''Series/GetSmart'' ReunionShow ''Get Smart! Again!'' the Cone of Silence has been replaced for top secret conversations by Hover Cover: The agents stand on the roof of a building while three helicopters hover overhead, making it impossible for anyone to listen in. It also makes it impossible for the agents involved to hear each other and they tend to get blown all around.

* Subverted in the Sao Paulo, Brazil episode of ''Series/NoReservations'', Creator/AnthonyBourdain and his friend hop in a helicopter to fly across town rather than drive. It's set up as gratuitous until Bourdain mentions in a voiceover that people who stick to the street need armored cars and defensive driving courses because street crime horrific traffic are such serious problems there.

* In ''HayateTheCombatButler'', Isumi keeps trying to convince her friends to ride with her in her helicopter as a means of travel, despite the lack of need to use it. Considering this is her fifth helicopter in as many days it's no surprise her friends prepare more normal methods of travel.

Simply having a particularly spiffy chopper with weaponry/gadgetry (which would fall under CoolPlane) is not this trope. Contrast this with instances where helicopters are expected (media about modern wars) or even practical (say, [[MagnumPI T.C.'s helicopter charter service in the multi-island state of Hawaii]]). Autogyros (which are essentially semi-powered rotary wing gliders), despite not technically being helicopters, ''are'' this trope, especially since they almost never appear ''except'' for cool value. When the use of the helicopter [[GoneHorriblyWrong goes horribly wrong]], that's HellishCopter.
