my stupid but effective memory aid:

 

the word "category" has the most letters and therefore describes the biggest groups you can categorize aircraft in:

rotorcraft, airplane, glider, LTA

 

the word "class" is shorter at 5 letters, and describes the sub-categories:

helicopter, single engine land.....

 

the word "type" is the shortest with only 4 letters, and therefore describes the smallest groups: individual aircraft types:

R22, C172....
