Cuando era chico veía volar a los próceres de mi mundo de historietas, en pequeños helicópteros que aterrizaban en terrazas y se metían entre medio de los altos edifi-cios de aquella mítica “Ciudad Gótica”. . You can now understand why the hinges in rotors are so important. Before Juan de la Cierva built his autogiros, he built models first. These models flew relatively well, but when he built the first real-size autogiros, these aircraft rolled over to the size when taking .

The Cierva Autogiros book C.6 prototype was fitted with ailerons mounted in two small wings, elevators and rudder. Autogiro definition is - a rotary-wing aircraft that employs a propeller for forward motion and a freely rotating rotor for lift.

Soon Cierva's Autogiros again were equipped with lateral control provided by the rotor and at the same time the rotor also controlled the autogiro longitudinally. All this was accomplished with a simple principle; tilting the rotating axis of the rotor in the direction that control was wanted.

Autogiros, Autogyros, Gyroplanes and Gyrocopters are generic names for a type of aircraft first invented in by Spanish engineer Juan De La Cierva and which he named 'Autogiro'.

He went on to successfully develop the Autogiro through the 's and 's and it became the forerunner in the development of the later successful helicopter.

That aircraft called BCD-1 Cangrejo (Crab in English) was the first Spanish-manufactured aircraft, built on the basis of a French Sommer.

The plane flew, but subsequent attempts by De la Cierva failed. The Cierva C was an autogiro designed by Juan de la Cierva and built under licence from the Cierva Autogiro Company by A V Roe & Co Ltd (Avro), Lioré-et-Olivier and Focke-Wulf. Before the experimental Cierva C Mk V, autogiros had been controlled in the same way as fixed-wing aircraft, that is by deflecting the air flowing over moving.

Tells the history of the autogiro, expounds the theory of rotating-wing flight in language easily comprehended by the average person and explains how various rotor systems rated with.

Cierva's autogiros gained acceptance within the aviation community and the Cierva Autogiro Company began to sell build rights of Cierva Autogiro’s. It must be noted that the word Autogiro was a tradename of Cierva’s windmilling rotary-wing aircraft. as quoted in John Fay’s book The Helicopter “Juan de la Cierva will be known to.

Cierva C-4 Autogyro. During the war, squadron (at Halton) of the RAF was equipped Cierva Autogiros, produced as the Avro Rota mark-1 for the very important and top secret job of helping to calibrate radar, a job that was done very early in the morning and practically every morning as it meant they could stay in place longer to check the calibration.

This illustrated history deals with Cierva's work and how it continued after his death. And Frank Kingston Smith’s Legacy of Wings: The Story of Harold F. Pitcairn, which has long served as the standard reference for Pitcairn’s life, reveals only part of the story, as does Peter Brooks’ book Cierva Autogiros.

Happily, Carl Gunther’s new book on Pitcairn superbly fills this void. Townson's book covers the entire spectrum of American autogiro development, from early Cierva based designs to civil and military models produced by Pitcairn and Kellett.

But make no mistake, this book focuses entirely on American produced autogiros, Cierva's and their European brothers are mentioned only as they relate to the development. Please note: Autogyro is a generic term, as is gyroplane and rotaplane.

Autogiro is applicable to any design produced under licence from Cierva, eg Pitcairn, Kellett, etc. Gyrocopter is applicable to any design produced under licence from per: Cristoval.

JJ, the book, Cierva Autogiros, contains several pages of Cierva’s patents for pitch-drag coupling but all are basically variations of the drawing above posted by XX.
