349 of 3,418
Single-person, airdroppable helicopter developed by Hiller in 1957, originally under the XROE-1 designation. Ten additional airframes (of which this is one) were manufactured under license by Saunders-Roe. Five were evaluated by NASA and the USMC in 1962 and five were sold commercially. One of these other airframes (4024, N4230U), is privately owned and still flown. The example shown here is on display in the Hiller Aviation Museum.
