COOPERATIVE PATENT CLASSIFICATION
Collapse
AEROPLANES ; HELICOPTERS( air-cushion vehicles B60V )
NOTE
-
As far as possible, classification is made according to constructional features; classification according to particular kinds of aircraft is normally regarded as being of secondary importance, except in cases where this is considered to be the characteristic feature.

WARNING
-

The following IPC groups are not used in the CPC scheme. Subject matter covered by these groups is classified in the following CPC groups:
- B64C35/02 covered by B64C 35/00
