My 10th Gen Honda Civic Hatchback makes a faint but noticeable helicopter/propeller like noise when going over 40 mph.
There is no apparent vibrations to the steering or any swaying to a side and the drive seems fine.

However I recently carried several bags of garden compost in the trunk possibly with a total weight of ~ 200 kg. Then the noise was definitely much louder when the speed reached around 40+ mph.

For what its worth I have made a small sound recording of the noise (When I was not carrying any load in truck). Unfortunately I am not able to attach sound files here, but can send it across by another channel if required.

The tiers are relatively new and cant see any damage or debris.

Would be fantastic if any one of you motor detectives could give me a lead as to what the issue could be ?

Cheers

Sounds likes wheel bearings are giving up on you, are you able to pinpoint the sound to either end of the car at all? The fronts will make more noise under braking, the rears are easier to hear if you turn and give the rear end some load in a corner.
