No. The Hafner (one "f") Rotachute was British, and this one here is clearly French, judging from the caption.

Thank you a lot : so , the info was right : Haustetter and his device actually existed ...
BTW the record is very " Mark Twain " style : I believe ( but not sure ) Mark Twain wrote for a St Petersburg paper ...It seems that his lesson were not forgotten ...

It is, but not the same beast. Noubel's Véloréacteur (note the correct spelling, meaning "jet bicycle") was this:

The French speakers may remember Christophe's Savant Cosinus and his famous invention the Anémélectroreculpédalicoupeventombrosoparacloucycle ...
That was 1889. ;D

I don't know about a light helicopter but there was an autogyro in a French Army museum (Musee ALAT at Dax). There is a nice photo by M. Patrick Perrier at http://tagazous.free.fr/affichage2.php?img=35008.

Hi Hesham :D
I think that the RM-02 you mention is the autogyro in the ALAT Museum.
I do know of a helicopter by Roger Marquion, but I think that was the RM-01 (RM-1?) registered F-PYPD and apparently built in 1982 and first registsred on 13 October 1983. Attached a phioto of F-PYPD. Sorry but I have no other details. Perhaps the RM-01 was based on or influenced by the Schramm/Rotorway Scorpion?

Hesham,

On the online copy of the French civil rotorcraft register, it says clearly RM-01 = h/c = Helicopter, RM02 = gyro = Autogyro. http://www.rotorspot.nl/historic/f-2.php
Marquion was a "Constructeur Amateur", ie an individual home builder. Not a company with prototypes and series production.
This particular question is closed. The article you cite without source must have mixed up its numbers.
___

NB: this register also shows 2 more Marquion contraptions achieving registration: Marquion-Dreyer MD-05B [gyro] F-WSZH, and Marquion RMT-01 (gyro) F-WTXK
___

What I find interesting is that the RM-02 started with civvie registration F-WNUC, as normal for an amateur build, but then received military reg 84-EL from Aviation Légère de l'Armée de Terre, ie the Army land forces light aviation. Any info about its intended use in ALAT, duration and results?
