Steve's Video Of The Day: "The Spanish Windmill"!

Juan de la Cierva was a man with an idea that he wouldn't let die, similar to other "passionate" aviation designers. His dream wouldn't die, but unfortunately "he did". He is recognized as the man behind the "autogyro" idea, and made the design that was later owned by "Pitcairn". What an "impact" these aircraft could have on "General Aviation" today, allowing people to access areas without runways. Check out some history on the "autogyro"!
