Подпись: ▲ In the 1950s Bonscn Aircraft of Raloigh. North Carolina doveloped the concept ol a low-cost, homo-built gyrocopter which did not require a pilot's licence to be flown.Autogyrosoctor Igor Bensen, former chief of research at Kaman Aircraft, saw the potential for marketing a series of light autogyros and rotary-winged glidors. First flying in the mid-1950s, these strange craft proved very successful, remaining in production for nearly 30 years.
