Vought-Sikorsky VS-300
29,90 € *

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Vought-Sikorsky VS-300 was a single-engine helicopter designed by Igor Sikorsky. It had a single three-blade rotor originally powered by a 75 horsepower (56 kW) engine. The first flight of the VS-300 was on 13 May 1940, powered by a larger, 90 horsepower (67 kW) engine. While not the first successful helicopter to fly, it was the first successful helicopter in the United States and the first successful helicopter to use a single vertical tail rotor configuration for antitorque. Sikorsky fitted utility floats (also called pontoons) to the VS-300 and performed a water landing and takeoff on 17 April 1941, making it the first practical amphibious helicopter. On 6 May 1941, the VS-300 beat the world endurance record held by the Fw 61 by staying aloft for 1 hour 32 minutes and 26.1 seconds.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Igor Sikorsky (25 May [O.S. 13 May] 1889 26 October 1972), born Igor Ivanovich Sikorsky, was a Russian-American pioneer of aviation in both helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. He designed and flew the world''s first multi-engine fixed-wing aircraft, the Russky Vityaz in 1913, and the first airliner, Ilya Muromets, in 1914. After immigrating to the United States, Sikorsky founded the Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation in 1923, and developed the first of Pan American Airways'' ocean-conquering flying boats in the 1930s. In 1939, he designed and flew the Vought-Sikorsky VS-300, the first viable American helicopter, which pioneered the rotor configuration used by most helicopters today. Sikorsky would modify the design into the Sikorsky R- 4, which became the world''s first mass-produced helicopter in 1942.

Wobbies World was an amusement park which operated from about 1970 to the late 1990s in the Melbourne suburb of Forest Hill, Australia. The park was quite small in area and targeted mainly to the simple expectations of young children. The park consisted of many custom-built attractions, most very slow moving. The park had some characteristic modes of transport including a helicopter "Whirliebird" monorail circuit, mower motor driven 6 wheeler ATVs, a real Bell helicopter refurbished as a ground-mounted simulator, a "Splashdown" mini log ride, a mini-golf course, trampolines, a ball pit, several food and drink kiosks, a miniature train circuit, a miniature car circuit, 4 Melbourne W2 class trams and a large Vickers Viscount propeller plane fitted out as a movie-projector simulator.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The HJH Whirlaway was a 1940s American experimental twin-rotor helicopter designed and built by McDonnell Aircraft for the United States Navy. It was the first successful twin-engined, twin rotor helicopter in the world. In 1944 the United States Navy issued a requirement for a large rescue helicopter with a capacity for ten occupants. The design was originally started by Douglas Aircraft and designated XHJD-1, following the merger with McDonnell it was re-designated the XHJH-1 before it was completed. The XHJH-1 first flew in August 1944 and had twin side-by-side 46 ft (14 m) rotors at the end of pylon wings which turned in opposite directions. Each rotor was powered by a 450 hp (336 kW) Pratt & Whitney R-985 engine.
