Goodness gracious me. This is SWEET!!! Thanks a lot for sharing Travis, it's appreciated. Have we seen the end of the brochure? Perhaps now we could turn it into a downloadable PDF?

You're very welcome! Yes, this is the end. I want to apologize for the huge sizes, but most were actually larger when I dug them from my collection. I had to resize specially for upload here.

Thanks, Paul, for the PDF version!

Ah, but I used to have a lot more time on my hands than I have now, unfortunately. The Sikorsky plan was done back in 2012.
Nowadays all the spare time I have goes into my new website, which I have been preparing for several months now...
So, no, I won't be able to "collect the pieces" for the time being, sorry. Maybe someone else can?

Thanks for this picture. Neat stop-rotor concept.
On the view of the back side, there is a scribbling that looks like "CH-1454". Any idea what it means?
Do we know any designation for this Hughes concept, other than Heliplane?

Big surprise,

this hot-cycle rotor helicopter was called Hughes Model H-356.

Hi,

here is a Hughes Model-285 Hot-Cycle Rotor System,and maybe this generic helicopter
was early design to use on it.
