    The mass of the helicopter is 1500 kg. Calculate the magnitude of the lift force.

    I've done 1500x9.81= 14715 is this correct?

    Assuming you are asking what magnitude of force is required to keep the helicopter in a stationary position above the ground with no forces other than gravity acting on it. then yes.

    F = mg

    F = 1500 kg x 9.81 m/s = 14715 Newtons
