One way to power a helicopter rotor is to blow air through the rotor tip. Such helicopters are known as tip-jets and have the potential to be lighter and simpler than conventional helicopters. Tip-jets were widely studied in the 1950s but have not seen production due to low efficiency and very high noise levels. However, based on historical data, a compound configuration which uses tip-jet power only during vertical take-off and landing, and then transitions to an autogiro mode using a propeller for forward thrust has the potential to provide fast, efficient, and reliable flight characteristics, while minimizing noise levels to those encountered in conventional rotorcraft.
