Jaycopter Helicopter Pilot Training System in N Scale
N Scale Kit: Assembly and finishing required
Fence not included.
This is a replica kit of the original full sized Jaycopter Helicopter Training System that was developed by Peter Charles Jacobs in the late 1950's in Edmonton, Alberta.
The Jaycopter was built to provide helicopter pilot training and to provide a realistic appraisal of a pilot's ability. By operating in absolute safety, it taught the fundamentals of control and co-ordination easily and simply in a cost effective way before turning the trainee loose with an instructor in a real helicopter. It was designed to produce a larger number of qualified pilots faster and cheaper while eliminating the possibility of personal injury and/or helicopter damage in early training situations.
