Lane Automatous Air-Ship Co Helicopter
 
Described in 1908 as only as having a single 40'x20' plane in the center of a horizontal screw 16' in diameter. "The screw sucks air from above, compresses it, and discharges it underneath from special cups at 250 times per minute." Jane's reported that Lane flew this for 1.5 miles on 9/8/1908, using only hand- and foot-power, but specs show it having a 36hp motor.
