The Gluhareff Dart's 3-view is in the booklet "Unknown No.3", sold at http://www.luft46.com/rd/rdreams.html
(view from below on the cover in that site)
 
Unknown No.3

Anybody can post a pic of the Gluhareff fighter?. Who's Mr Gluhareff?.

Anybody can post a pic of the Jet Thunderbolt project?

Thanks a lot
 
Dear friend,

The Gluhareff fighter is illustrated in the WaffenArsenal band 102 on page 42.
(German version)
'Überschalljäger Lippisch P13a und Versuchsgleiter DM-1'

Michael Gluhareff was a Russian engineer who fled via Finland to the U.S in 1924.
He worked for Igor Sikorsky and became chief of design for Vought-Sikorsky in 1935.
His work on tailless aircraft designs "arrow tip" as he called it is described in
"Lippisch,Gluhareff and Jones: The emergence of the Delta Planform
and the Origins of the Swept Wing in the United States" by Richard P.Hallion.
in Aerospace Historian of March 1979.

My Grandfather spent his whole life from 19 years old to retirement working on aircraft and mainly with Sikorsky.
He won every award possible from the 1920's until 1960's..also my Great Uncle Serge worked at Sikorsky as well as my Father Alex and Uncle Eugene Gluhareff.

I am in the process of doing a website dedicated to grandfathers life work, showing pictures, awards and several of his drawings.
it will be located at www.sikorsky.ws
this will be avail for all to view in a couple weeks.

thanks

I will be adding more drawings and prints as I recieve them from the old archives and files.
The people at Sikorksy will be donating some photos and drawings from their files this week also.

Some of you remember Micheal Gluhareff the Russian inventor who helped build Sikorksy into a world leader and was a major force in the first working helicopter...Invented "The Dart" ect....
if you do please help pay respects by visiting the new website dedicated to his memory at
www.sikorsky.ws and sign the guest book

Thanks

Done! Thank you for launching this site!
 
This link has been hijacked and takes you to some wretched spam video on YouTube.
 
What a shame! Any news as to what the Gluhareff/Sikorsky website has become? Does anyone still have contact with the family?
 
just found this link accidentally, i dunno if you guys are familiar with it, its called “Dart” Gluhareff configuration

Several topics merged.

Hamza, please think of using the forum's search engine before starting a new topic!
 
And a transport patent.

Found this at: http://www.airpages.ru/dc/german_influence.shtml

http://www.airpages.ru/dc/german_influence_03s.jpg

I stress the title ‘german influence’ is not mine but anyway, the caption text (as rendered via Google translate) runs thus:

“1. Schematic of the experimental aircraft "Arrow" design A. Moskalev, built and tested in 1937, "Arrow" was to design an aerodynamic analogue Moskalev fighter "Sigma".
2. Draft a fighter-interceptor, developed on the company Sikorski M. Glukhareva [Gluhareff] in 1939-1941.
3. Scheme of LP-13 fighter, 1945
4. missile destroyer Scheme K-15 KA Kalinin, 1937
5. Scheme BI aircraft Cheranovskii, 1944”

I'm not sure how accurate that caption is of course.

I am able to contact his granddaughter Irena. She was hoping to reignite (pardon the expression) the tip-jet 20 lb. pressure jet engine with a new design, but I'm pretty sure there wasn't enough interest in it to keep things alive. I've spoken with a few people who knew Gene...shame I didn't get the chance. Kevin Hambsch
 
Hi KHambsch,

if you can get this,please we want to see,and if there is anther
Projects or drawings,we would like that.

Hi Hesham, More on Gluhareff Dart or Pressure Jet engine? I found Justo's description to be quite detail. Re the pressure jet engine, it was designed for the cord-end-tip of the main rotor(s) for helicopters. I have an online (axial) version that I designed...wool be putting it in the propulsion section soon.
Regards, Kevin Hambsch
 
Thank you for these. Tricycle configuration, so very neat. Lots of pilot visibility ?

Hopefully, the under-wing 'tails' were reinforced with skids against 'Rotation' oopsies, per similar ventral pads on modern passenger aircraft...

That lonnnng driveshaft may have proved problematic, engine access 'interesting'...

Um, did they consider pilot escape, given those 'mixmaster' blades lurking ??

My great grandfather Roger W Griswold II worked with your grandfather on this project. So crazy to be discovering this on the internet and finding these forums. Attached is an excerpt from a book on NASA’s contributions to aeronautics.
