The Pitcairn AC-35








The Pitcairn Autogiro Company's AC-35."An aircraft in everyone's garage". Such was the aim in 1935, of the makers of the AC-35 Roadable Autogiro. The manufacturer was the Autogiro Company of America, a subsidiary of Pitcairn Autogiro. The AC-35 had many interesting design features. The rotor blades could be folded back over the fuselage for ground travel and for storage in an average sized garage. It could be flown by a licensed pilot, and that pilot did not need rotary-wing-aircraft experience. On the road, the aircraft could reach a speed of 25 mph maximum. It seated two in a side-by-side arrangement.
