Harold E. Emigh founded the Helicopter Research Corporation in 1954 to develop and market a single-seat personal helicopter. Known as the Helicom Commuter Jr Model H-1 A, the prototype first flew in 1960, and was sold both in ready-to-fly form and as a kit for assembly by amateur constructors. A ground trainer version was developed also, mounted via a gimbal to a castoring base which was too heavy for the helicopter to lift from the ground.
