The S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier is a hi-tech aircraft carrier used by S.H.I.E.L.D., designed to be itself capable of independent powered flight in addition to the conventional functions of aircraft carriers.

In The Avengers, the helicarrier resembles an aircraft carrier with two decks (the main one for taking off, the other a slanted deck for landing). It is lifted vertically by four colossal fans, and propelled forward by two large arrays of jet engines at its rear. It can also float in the water like a conventional aircraft carrier; in this mode, the jet engines and fans are concealed underwater. It serves as an airborne base for S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as a landing and takeoff platform for aircraft such as the F-35 Lightning II and Quinjets.
Several helicarriers make an appearance again in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, although with a slightly different design, and more visible weapons systems. They appear to use different means of propulsion lift (instead of fans), possibly large repulsors.
- The Helicarrier appears in the game Iron Man 2. The preview video for the game reveals that Tony Stark was the one who built it. It is shown as the S.H.I.E.L.D. base throughout the game, but also as a weapon. At one point, it is attacked by A.I.M. forces; however, they are defeated by the combined forces of Iron Man and War Machine. At the end of the game, it is destroyed, on purpose, when it crashes into the giant Ultimo.
- It is similar to the Ultimate version (Earth-1610) of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.
