The Campbell Aircraft Company was founded in the late 1950's to develop and build autogyros and in 1969 began production of the single seat Cricket autogyro. This was later followed by a two-seat project and the construction of a single seat prototype was carried out by Western Airways at Weston-super-Mare Airport in early 1973. Powered by a single Rolls Royce Continental O-240-A 4-cylinder 'flat-four' piston engine it first flew in April 1973.

 

Cricket autogyros were still being manufactured in 2007, and Peter Lovegrove who was the original designer of the Cougar and Cricket was still involved.
