Partenavia P.53 Aeroscooter
 
 Part-Airscoot-01
 
The Partenavia P-53 Aeroscooter was designed by Luigi Pascale, expressly for Mario de Bernardi, winner of the previous year's d 'Annunzio Trophy on a Partenavia P-55 Tornado.
 
The Aeroscooter is constructed of metal, and represents the minimum safe structure required to unite pilot, engine and flying surfaces. It fitted with a two-bladed rotor to reduce descent rate and stall in the event of an engine failure.
It flew in 1951.
 
It was built in collaboration with one Mario de Bernardi, who went on to build a two-seat version of the Aeroscooter; but he then died of a heart attack, and that was the end of it.
