Platt-Le Page PL-1 / PL-3

Design and construction was started on an experimental helicopter PL-1, with Laurence LePage keeping the U.S. Air Corps informed of their progress during the early construction of their machine. At this time there were no funds for the U.S. Air Corps to purchase a helicopter, so the Platt-LePage design went forward as a private venture, later with the passage of the Dorsey Bill H.R.8143, the U.S. Air Corps held a competition for Rotary Winged Aircraft, and Platt-LePage redesigned the PL-1 to meet military needs and the design became known as the PL-3.
