Aerocentre NC.2001 Abeille
SNCAC NC.2001 Abeille
The Helicopter Division of SNCAC was established by Rene Dorand and designed and built three prototypes of the NC.2001 "Abeille" helicopter, the second of which was flown on 28 June 1949, following ground destruction of the first machine. It had twin inter-meshing two-blade rotors, an all-metal fuselage with an extensively glazed nose and accommodation for five people. The undercarriage was a fixed tricycle type and it had a tailplane with twin fins. The NC.2001 was powered by a 450hp Renault 12S00 piston engine. The project was discontinued on the dissolution of SNCAC in 1949 with only one flight having been made.
