The Helicopter is a gimmick that first appeared in Sonic Adventure. It is a regular Helicopter that helps transport the player throughout SpeedHighway.
The Helicopter resembles a typical real-life helicopter with a white coloration, a wide windshield, thin landing gear and a blue streak on top.
In gameplay, the Helicopter is usually seen on the ground, but when the player gets near its undercarriage, it will begin to take off and fly while Sonic automatically starts hanging onto one of its columns. The Helicopter will then carry Sonic across wide bottomless gabs. Once it is above solid ground again, Sonic will release the Helicopter.
In Sonic Adventure, the Helicopter only appears in Sonic's version of Speed Highway. However, the player has to be careful not to touch its rotor blades when they are rotating, or Sonic will take damage. The Helicopter can also be seen when running on the building section where it can hurt the player if touched.
In Sonic Generations, the Helicopters look exactly like they did in Sonic Adventure, but with more details. They are encountered in both acts of Speed Highway, sometimes in the air and other times on the ground.
