American Helicopter Company XA-5 Top Sargent

 

americanxa5


The first project of the American Helicopter company was the two-seat open-cockpit XA-5 "Top Sergeant", which was based on the lower fuselage and undercarriage of a Sikorsky R-6 with an open rear boom and small rudder. It was driven by two tip-mounted 43kg AJ 8.75 pulse-jet engines driven by a fuselage-mounted compressor, and made its first flight in January 1949.
