Like soaring gliders and sailplanes, the helicopter glider has no engine; it can be towed by a vehicle until it becomes airborne and can remain inside the air as long as it can be towed or as long as there is certainly adequate wind to maintain its rotor blades turning.

Igor B. Bensen, designer and developer of the craft within this nation, calls it a "Gyro-glider" and says it can be controlled within the air with 1 stick like a helicopter. His firm might undertake to create the machines commercially, and will make plans and kits offered to high college and college students who can build them at home for less than $100. He says they may be fantastic for sports flying and pilot instruction. The miniature craft consists of an air frame of tubular [Continued on web page 207] steel from the Bensen "Mid-jet" helicopter, a handle stick and two nine-ft. rotor blades. Really easy to fly, it can not stall mainly because it is impossible to stop the rotor blades from turning though it is in the air. The Gyro-glider takes off at a speed of 20 mph, lands at about seven mph, breitling swiss replica and can lift with ease greater than four times its personal weight.

Bensen points out that rotary-wing gliders had been utilised by German submarines during World War II for observation purposes. Reeled out more than the stern of a sub with an observer-pilot at the controls, these engineless craft were employed to search for Allied convoys from beyond the array of the ordinary periscope.

Bensen, who's a native of Russia swiss breitling replica , contends that American youth nowadays is discouraged from finding out to fly by strict regulations and high fees of private aviation.

It is completely attainable that the Gyro-glider, which is often constructed cheaply and operated for only the cost of driving the towing vehicle, might support revive the interest of our youth in aviation.
