Autogiro Pioneer: The Life of Jack Richardson

Autogiro Pioneer is a vivid account of the varied life and adventures of Jack Richardson (1899-1987). In the 1930s he worked for Juan de la Cierva, the inventor of the Autogiro (the forerunner of the helicopter), and was the first person to obtain a commercial pilot's licence as an Autogiro pilot.
