Image: An Illustrated History of Military Helicopters: Every Generation Of Rotorcraft, From Early Prototypes To The Specialist Models Of Today, Shown In Over 200 Photographs | Paperback: 96 pages | by Francis Crosby (Author). Publisher: Southwater; Ill edition (December 7, 2016)
First Helicopter's Flight (1922)
-- In 1922, Henry Berliner mounted two coaxial counter-rotating rotors on the wingtips of a Nieuport biplane fuselage. Sets of movable vanes—flat surfaces mounted under the rotors—provided some control. The craft reportedly could maneuver in all directions and obtained a speed of about 40 miles per hour (64 kilometers per hour). In June 1922, it hovered around 12 feet (3.3 meters) off the ground and was successfully demonstrated to the U.S. Army in 1924. The Berliner aircraft is considered the first rudimentary piloted helicopter developed in the United States.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up - and re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and Bella, the cat.
