A helicopter is a desired object in our culture and is now a symbol of wealth and status. In some cases however, such as in war situations, helicopters are symbols of conflict. The situation your helicopter appears in within the dream will be very revealing in terms of what it means. Is it rescuing someone? Do you need a helicopter to be rescued? Are you in a helicopter on an exotic adventure? Is someone coming to visit you and arriving by helicopter? The feelings that are associated with the arrival or departure of the helicopter in your dream will be very revealing to you in terms of what the helicopter means from the dream world to your waking life.
