Default FA: The Helicopters Are Coming

New York: Whittlesey House, 1944. Illustrated by Erik Nitsche & Roslyn
Welcher. First edition. Ex-library condition, no dust jacket. Usual library
flaws. Sketches throughout the text, and four color photo plates. 165 pages.

"It is my sincere wish that this book will serve the cause of sound
development and utilization of helicopters by answering fairly the questions
in the minds of everyone regarding the highly controversial subject of the
helicopter's future.

"You will not be able to go down to the Main Street showrooms and pick out
your helicopters as soon as the war ends, but the first few helicopters may
be offered for sale before the end of the following year, perhaps a little
longer. The first models may be more expensive than a medium-priced car and
will certainly require more care and expense in upkeep.

"In (the fictional town of) Helipark there will be no streets or roads, only
pleasant walks and pathways. Service drives for the occasional delivery or
removal of very heavy objects will exist, but in all probability will be
camouflaged or partially concealed. In some instances, communities will grow
around a small airport or landing strip with a concentration of commercial
establishments, including servicing facilities and recreational activities
around the airfield. In other cases residents will forgo the landing field
to enjoy greater freedom from commercial activities near their home.

"Children and adults may play and roam at will over the surrounding
countryside without fear of speeding trucks and autos. Arriving and
departing helicopters present no problem because they land so slowly that if
a child darts out into a helicopter's path the pilot can simply touch his
controls and bounce back up into the air a few feet until the way is clear
for an unobstructed landing.

"A suitable roof deck may be used for landing the helicopter wherever it is
desired for architectural considerations or because of the lack of a
suitable spot on the adjacent terrain."

starting bid = $9.50
