Hafner AR.III

hafner_gyroplane


After the 1931, Hafner went to England where he designed and flew, with some success, his A.R.III gyroplane, a jump start autogyro. Raoul Hafner flew this first combined cyclic-and-collective control system on an autogiro with articulated blades in 1935. Although this machine was not capable of hovering, it marks a milestone in helicopter tecnnology.
