The Great American Jet Pack : The Quest for the Ultimate Individual Lift Device

Tracing the impressive background of a definite type of flying machine—from the rocket belt to the jet belt to the flying platform and all of the approach to Yves Rossy’s 21st-century loose flights utilizing a jet-powered wing—this historic account delves into the know-how that made those units attainable and the explanations why they by no means turned advertisement successes on a mass scale.

000lb/14,969kg, forty-seat demonstrator, which flew in 1957, and which, in the course of a four-year flight programme, proved the feasibility of the concept, and achieved all its experimental objectives. When the Rotodyne project was terminated, in 1962, work was well underway on the design of the production aircraft; metal had been cut, a full-sized mock-up fuselage was built and development tests with the enlarged tip-jet system were in hand. Because government finance and technical support had been involved throughout the programme, the prototype, hardware and data, were all deemed to be ‘government property’, and the disposal of such assets rested with ‘officialdom’.

The wing ribs were constructed from pressed light alloy sheet. The wing provided approximately 50 per cent of the lift when operating in gyroplane mode. It also contained all the main fuel tankage (726 gallons/3,300ltrs). The wing was attached to the fuselage at four points, and provision was made on the front and rear spars for the pick-ups of the rotor pylon structure. Provision was made for fuel to be carried in four tanks, arranged between the wing spars, one inboard 170 gallons/773ltrs, and one 193 gallons/877ltrs outboard of each engine nacelle, all feeding to a 30 gallon/136ltrs collector tank, situated in the pylon.

It is perhaps an ironic twist of fate that Cierva should die in an airline crash in 1936, while taking off from Croydon. The Influence of German Activity For further insight into the evolutionary process, it is necessary to look to Germany, where the potential of the helicopter was recognised long before a solution was realised. Several practical rotorcraft were flown in Germany during the years 1936–1945. The progress achieved in Germany during the pre-war years is often symbolised by the image of the aviatrix, Hanna Reitsch, flying the twin-rotor Focke Achgelis Fa 61 in the Deutschlandhalle, Berlin, with apparent ease, in 1938.
