Helicopter Rotor Research
Most large organisations had a range of hand-outs as gifts at Air Shows and Open Days and stickers are always popular.
Helicopter research, including fundamental understanding of rotor aerodynamic performance and helicopter flight mechanics was carried out at The Royal Aircraft Establishment at Bedford during the 1960’s through the 1970’s. This work involved: Wessex Mk1 XM300; Scout XP191; the Lockheed XH51 on loan from NASA; Puma XW241 and Lynx ZD559.
