de Puiseux Aéro-Cycle No. 5 La Mouche

This was the ultimate development of Comte Gustave de Puiseux's ambitions of 1911/1912 to create a successful human-powered airplane. At least one source quoted that it flew 16 meters. The machine, which had a wing span of some 6,5 m and a length of 5.5 m had a tractor propeller driven by the human cyclist, pedalling via chains. It is unlikely that a powered version was ever made, since this was more work than just installing an engine and the Count had no experience with engines.
