Gluhareff MEG-1X

gluharev_meg-1


Eugene Gluhareff established a development company in 1952 to carry out research into pressure-jet powered light helicopters. Mr. Gluhareff pioneered the use of liquid propane as a fuel for jet engines and a series of ultra-light portable one-man-helicopters, MEG-1X, MEG-2X and MEG-3X which were designed and built by his own company, Gluhareff Helicopters Corporation. All of which were powered by the G8-2 Pressure Jet Engine on the blade tip and test flown by Eugene M. Gluhareff.
He built the MEG-1X personal strap-on helicopter rig which used a single-blade rotor with a tip-mounted G8-2 engine and followed this with the MEG-2X which had a two-blade rotor. No commercial development was undertaken.
