VFW Fokker H2

VFW-H2

 

In 1968, VFW (Vereingte Flugtechnische Werke) built an experimental open gyrocopter modelled on the Bensen B.8M. This VFW-H2 was unusual in having ducted rotor blade tip jets supplied from the 72hp McCulloch engine. The engine itself was mounted behind the pilot and drove a two-blade pusher propeller.

 

The H-2 (D-HIBY) was followed by a more sophisticated machine - the H-3 Sprinter which had a completely enclosed fuselage structure with a three-seat cabin, slim low-set tailboom with a V-tail, and a tricycle undercarriage.
