and flight controls in the 1930s. However, he believed in making mistakes on a small enough scale that you could learn from them quickly and relative- ly inexpensively. His approach paid off and his painstaking efforts not only gained him recognition as an expert in helicopter stability by some of the most prominent helicopter developers of the day, but also allowed him to quickly develop a working full scale helicopter and receive the first ever com- mercial helicopter certification. His engineering ability helped establish Bell as a one of the leading helicopter producers in the world, a reputation that it still maintains today. Arthur Young undoubtedly played a significant role in advancing helicopter development in the 1930s and 1940s and his Model 47 went on to play pivotal roles in shaping both mil- itary and commercial rotary wing aviation making him a true Rotorcraft Pioneer. abcd
