“Paul Cornu's helicopter was the first to make a free flight carrying a pilot on November 13, 1907. It was powered by an Antoinette engine. On its first flight, it rose about 1 foot, and then climbed to 5 feet with both Cornu and his brother on board! Unfortunately, he lacked the money to continue with his experiments. Back to the drawing board!”
