Very little is known about this VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing) project. The
entire aircraft had a aerofoil section, and there were two huge propellers located in the
center of the aircraft. They rotated in opposite directions, thus canceling out torque problems.
At low speeds, control was achieved by varying power to each propeller. Power
was to be provided by an unnamed turbojet, and forward propulsion was brought about by
sending exhaust through a nozzle located on both trailing edges. The landing gear
was very simple, consisting of two main gear legs on either side of the center propellers,
and a small tail wheel. A single fin and rudder was provided to help with lateral
stability at higher speeds. The single pilot sat in a cockpit nacelle that protruded from the front
of the aerofoil section fuselage.
Nothing ever came of this very interesting project......
